In this study, a real-time grouting management system based on the clogging theory was stablished to manage injection procedure in real time. This system is capable of estimating hydraulic permeability with the passage of time as the grout permeates through the ground, and therefore, capable of estimating real time injection distance and flow rate. By adopting the Controlled Injection Pressure (CoIP) model, it was feasible to predict the grout permeation status with the elapse of time by consecutively updating the hydraulic gradient and flow rate estimated from a clogging-induced alteration of pore volume. Moreover, a method to estimate the volume of the fractured gap according to the reduction in injection pressure was proposed. The validity of the proposed system was successfully established by comparing the estimated values with the measured field data.
