Provides exhaustive coverage of cement grouting in rock foundations, outlining all types of cement grout, comparing their suitabilities and describing various ways cement grouting is used in engineering construction. Written and arranged in an easy-to-read manner, the book is arranged as a reference manual with numerous cross-references. Step-by-step explanations on grouting techniques are given in considerable detail and written with both the novice and experienced practitioner in mind. Also covers advanced technology, including the current state of computer use in grouting operations; the latest grouting materials such as microfine; and the use of superplasticizers in cement grout. Chapters are arranged from elementary to advanced technology.When batching, the water is measured into the mixer first, followed by the cement and any other ingredients. The batching ... The tables give a selection of mix sizes, from one-bag batches up to five-bag batches in some cases, and cover the range of mix thickening from 4 : 1 to 0.5 : 1 . ... The tables do not include additives .
