A POSITIVE APPROACH TO GROUTING

This paper describes the successful grouting of prestressing tendons on Taff Viaduct, part of the Butetown Link Road in Cardiff. Discussion of the grout's performance shows the relationship of water/cement ratio, admixtures and temperature to bleed, shrinkage and flow. Also, the practical problems associated with grouting of discontinuous internal ducts typical of a segmental structure are highlighted. (A)
