Event Detail

This course covers injection grouting as a method to improve geotechnical characteristics of soils and rock masses, with special focus on mechanisms, theories, and practical applications of grouting to ground densification and strengthening, permeability reduction and groundwater cutoffs, and excavation support. Major topics covered include rheological properties of cementitious and chemical grouts, procedures for cement and chemical grouting, field monitoring/instrumentation and verification, grouting of rock under dams, grouting of rock anchors and micropiles, deep mixing, jet grouting, diaphragm walls, compaction grouting, slab jacking, structural grouting, and grouting for underground structures.

The course includes a 1/2-day field demonstration of compaction and permeation grouting (using cementitious and chemical solution grouts), penetration of ultrafine cements, hydraulic fracturing, computer monitoring, grout mixing, uses of cellular concrete, overburden drilling methods, grouting of rock anchors, and use of borehole packers.
