Grouting and Ground Improvement
May 13 - May 16
Grouting and Ground Improvement is a 3½ day course that covers engineering, equipment, materials and methods for grouting and ground modification used in civil and geotechnical engineering, underground construction, tunneling and mining. It includes topics in engineering, equipment, materials and methods for grouting and ground modifications used on various types of projects. The course consists of classroom presentations by internationally-recognized experts and hands-on laboratory demonstrations and testing of grouts and grouting methods as well as off-campus field demos.
Classroom and lab topics include:
Grouting Methods (Jet, Compaction, Fracture, Permeation, Consolidation, Backfill and Contract)
Grouting Materials (cementitious and chemical)
Ground Freezing for Shafts, Tunnels and Cross Passageways
Course highlights include a field demo day providing participants with the opportunity to see grouting and ground improvement field equipment in action. Field demonstration include compaction grouting, chemical grouting, cellular grouting and permeation grouting.
