Innovative Grouting Solves Geotechnical Issues: Five Case Histories
H. C. Griffin, R. M. Berry

Some grouting projects are of particular interest because grouting was not initially considered in the range of alternate solutions. And some grouting projects are interesting because they involve unusual physical or technical challenges. To be worthy of note, a grouting project has to be wildly successful against long odds. Occasionally a grouting project meets all three criteria and is of interest to the engineering community at large. This paper presents brief case histories of five such projects, with a goal of encouraging engineers to consider grouting in the “short list” of possible solutions to geotechnical problems.
