Since 1979 the Grouting Fundamentals & Current Practice course has covered pressure grouting as a method to improve geotechnical characteristics of soils and rock masses. The 38th annual course will again be held at The University of Texas at Austin and involve a notable faculty of recognized grouting authorities. Major topics include rheological properties of cementitious and chemical grouts, cement and chemical grouting procedures, grouting of rock under dams, grouting of rock anchors and micropiles, deep mixing, jet grouting, cutoff walls and composite seepage barriers, compaction grouting, slab jacking, grouting for underground structures, overburden and rock drilling methods, and field monitoring/instrumentation. An on-site field demonstration is also included.
