Proceedings of sessions on grouting at Geo-Logan, held in Logan, Utah, July 16-18, 1997. Sponsored by the Grouting Committee of the Geo-Institute of ASCE.

This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 23 papers reporting case studies, field studies, and laboratory studies related to grouting materials and related technologies. Compaction grouting topics include reviews of mechanisms; the state of the practice; theories; grouting program for remediating a highway; and effect of fines in compaction grouts. Remediation grouting topics include radioactive waste trench grouting, stabilizing tall buildings, monitoring systems, mine subsidence, cement grouting of dam joints, and restoration of masonry structures. Several papers discuss available standard procedures for testing grouts and grouted soil. Papers on materials and testing explored strain rate effects on grouted sand strength, ultrafine cement grout, cellular grout, general concept and case studies on particulate grouts, silica fume modified grouts, injectability of cement in fine sand, shrinkage and swelling in polymeric grouts and grouted sands, and permeability and strength of urethane grouted sand.
