CHEMICAL GROUTING - 2

This paper, part 2 of a 3 part series, describes grout systems. Grout selection is discussed and common grout compositions which are currently in use are listed. A set of criteria was provided to help the engineer to judge how best to meet a performance specification. These include optimum injection method, availability of grout materials, stability of grout in situ. Viscosity of various grouts is considered by reference to a graph showing the growth of viscosity in period before gelation. Other aspects discussed are setting time, stability, strength of grouted formation, creep of grouted formation, and resistance of grout to extrusion. Tables of information are presented showing grouts used in alluvial grouting, grouting limits of common mixes and relative material costs of grout formulations. Other topics described are the permeability of grouted formations, permanence and health and safety aspects.
