Grouting and Ground Treatment: Proceedings of the Third International Conference, (ASCE)

Fifty Years of Low Mobility Grouting
James Warner

The authorís first encounter with the use of Low Mobility Grout was in 1952 when it was used to fill some small voids under a structure. Subsequently, it was found that structure and slabs could be precisely jacked with such grouts which had the distinct advantage of developing into a homogeneous mass and staying near to their point of placement. This led to Compaction Grouting which is now by far the greatest use of these grouts. The authorís experience in developing applications for such grouts, the current state of the art, and a look into the future of their use, is provided.
