The progress status of jet-grouting construction during the construction phase is difficult to verify and even after the completion of construction, it can be verified only by empirical methods. This study attempted to recreate a realistic simulation result of the middle-pressure jet-grouting method by establishing a computer-aided engineering (CAE) system from the planning/design stage of the ground model and verifying the validity of the construction process after the model was analyzed by the moving particle semi-implicit (MPS) method. The governing parameters for the ground were determined by the MPS simulation of the unconfined compression test. The construction simulation was analyzed and the results were validated by visual confirmation of the related phenomena, such as the soil-improved body formation and mud discharge. To verify the accuracy of the mud discharge phenomenon, three different probe regions were set above the model ground and the amount of mud discharge generated in each region was computed before drawing an overall conclusion of the study. A soil-improvement body of approximately 0.38 m3 was observed to have formed at the end of the study and the highest mud discharge particle number measured, for instance, was 896. This study is expected to serve as a guideline for further studies on simulation-based research.
