38th Annual Grouting Fundamentals and Current Practices Short Course
May 15 - 19, 2017
Thompson Conference Center, Austin TX
Since 1979 the Grouting Fundamentals and Current Practice course has covered pressure grouting as a method to improve geotechnical characteristics of soils and rock masses, with special focus on mechanisms, theories, and practical applications of grouting to ground densification and strengthening, permeability reduction and groundwater cutoffs. The course faculty includes recognized international authorities and leaders in the grouting industry, with several instructors having dedicated their efforts to this course for more than 30 years.
Major topics include rheological properties of cementitious and chemical grouts, procedures for cement and chemical grouting, grouting of rock under dams, grouting of rock anchors and micropiles, deep mixing, jet grouting, cutoff walls and composite seepage barriers, compaction grouting, slab jacking, structural grouting, grouting for underground structures, overburden and rock drilling methods, and field monitoring/instrumentation. A half-day field demonstration is included in the curriculum, focusing on compaction and permeation grouting, penetration of Ultrafine cements, hydraulic fracturing, computer monitoring, grout mixing, uses of cellular grouts, overburden drilling methods, grouting of rock anchors, and use of borehole packers.
The curriculum has been developed for Owners, Regulators, Consultants and Contractors having interest in the applications of pressure grouting to a broad array of geo-structural construction and remediation techniques. The course is also intended for petroleum engineering personnel involved in well drilling and operations.
