GROUTS AND GROUTING. A SURVEY OF MATERIALS AND PRACTICE

After an introduction which includes a table listing the various types of grout together with their possible usages, the authors describe five main applications of grouting. Each is illustrated by a number of case histories. The first application is ground stabilization. After discussing the reasons for this and the availability of different types of grout for different areas of treatment. Which range from fissured rock to sandy soils, the authors give details of the methods that are used for filler, chemical solution (Both one-shot and two-shot types) and resin grouts respectively. Bed-plate grouting is then dealt with in a similar way. This needs to withstand high stresses and details are given of the cementitions liquid resin and filled resin grouts that are used for the purpose. This third grout is post-tensioning cable duct grouting which is required both to seal the cable from corrosion and anchor it firmly. Admixed cementitions grouts are mostly used for this purpose, but the authors also discuss a polyester resin system that has been used. This is followed by an account of crack filling grouting, where resins of low viscosity are used, and finally anchor grouting where both cementitions and resin grouts are commonly used.
