Cementitious grouting is a process in which a fluid cementitious grout is pumped under pressure to fill forms, voids, and cracks. It can be used in several settings including bridges, marine applications, dams, and rock anchors. The grouted mass has an increased strength, stiffness, and reduced permeability.
Cement grouting can offer an economic advantage for underpinning applications over alternative approaches such as removal and replacement or piling, and can be performed where access is difficult and space is limited. Since the effectiveness of cement grouting is independent of structural connections, this technique is readily adaptable to existing foundations and can typically be accomplished without disrupting normal facility operations.
