Description Chapters

Practical Guide to Grouting of Underground Structures presents a hands-on discussion of grouting fundamentals and provides a foundation for the development of practical specifications and field procedures. Employing a pragmatic approach to the subject of grouting, Raymond W. Henn concentrates on areas such as the types of drilling, mixing and pumping equipment, and their application. The book focuses on how cementitious grouting is used in conjunction with the excavation and lining of tunnels, shafts, and underground caverns in rock. Overviews of cementitious grouting in soils and chemical grouting are also provided.

Topics covered range from record keeping to quality control and testing requirements, field operations, and production rates. Practical Guide to Grouting of Underground Structures is written as a useful handbook for engineers, construction supervisors, inspectors, and other professionals involved in the planning, design, and implementation of underground grouting programs.
