Soil improvement is required to decrease the construction impact on the adjacent underground structures, when a deep excavation is carried out. Deep soil mixing (DSM) is a common method to control deformation caused by deep excavation. This method is an in situ soil mixing technology that mixes existing soil with cementitious materials. This paper presents a numerical modeling of DSM columns, which was conducted to compare the affected zone achieved by installing two different partially penetrated soil-cement columns using a small scale physical modelling. Test procedure and the finite element analysis that verify ground displacement patterns were described. The finite element method (FEM) was focused on the plane strain numerical modeling in ABAQUS. It was found that higher numbers of piles increase the effect of soil deformation where it will extend the soil in much deeper depth before it fails.
