GROUTING FUNDAMENTALS AND TECHNIQUE

The article shows how fundamental factors applicable to grouting operations affect application of the treatment which relies on displacing existing pore fluids and then setting to remain in place. The balance between physical limitations and economics dictates two categories of grout - particulate suspensions of cements in water, and chemical solutions. The three fundamental factors influencing successful use of these grouts are defined as (1) physical limitations, (2) heterogeneity of ground, and (3) situation of treatment required. The second part of the article gives examples of how the fundamental factors affect typical applications and injection techniques. /TRRL/
