Bracing Crumbling Dock

American Cyanamid AM-9 Technical Manual 1960

  • An eight-year-old loading and mooring dock, 1600 feet long, at Sept Iles was showing distress. It had been constructed by driving sheet piling then placing a heavy rockfill as a base.

Controlling Seepage During Shaft Sinking

American Cyanamid AM-9 Technical Manual 1960

  • In order to reach newly discovered lead deposits, St. Joseph Leak Company had to sink large diameter deep shafts through permeable Lamotte Sandstone carrying ground water at high pressures.

Grouting River Beds for Dam Corewall Construction

American Cyanamid AM-9 Technical Manual 1960

  • A high earth- fill dam was being constructed across the Grijalva River. After diversion of the river, seepage was still occurring through the riverbed sands.

Stabilizing Soil for Construction Tunnels

American Cyanamid AM-9 Technical Manual 1960

  • In this project, two 12- foot diameter by 270- foot long tunnels were to be driven beneath thirteen sets of live railroad tracks on the property of the New York Central, New York, Susquehanna, and Western Railroads.

Sealing Leaks in a Dry Dock

American Cyanamid AM-9 Technical Manual 1960

  • Fitzroy Dry Dock, the oldest in Australia, was constructed in the days of sailing ships. Time and water pressure had eroded some of the jointing material, and sea water was entering the dock in a number of places.

Shutting Off Seepage at Missile Silo

American Cyanamid AM-9 Technical Manual 1960

  • Excavation had progressed 80 feet at this missile installation when water seepage became a problem.

Sealing Sandstone to Permit Shaft Sinking

American Cyanamid AM-9 Technical Manual 1960

  • In one of the deepest drilling operations in British coal mining history, plans called for the sinking of two 3,000-foot shafts, one to be used as a main coal-hoist shaft with skips, the other to house a conventional cage hoist.

Constructing Grout Curtain for Dam

American Cyanamid AM-9 Technical Manual 1960

  • The Columbia River Valley at the dam site is a wide canyon dividing the Columbia Plateau on the east from the Entiat Mountains on the west.

Long-Term Performance of Grouting Around a Flood Control Bulkhead in Shoals, Indiana

Avanti 2006

  • The long-term performance of the end-product is more important. For this reason, we have re-visited an 18-year-old mine grouting project that took place to prevent the flooding of a gypsum mine in Shoals, Indiana.

Driving Down I/I

Joe Hastreiter Municipal Sewer & Water 2006

  • CIPP lining and grouting of lateral connections proves to be a sound formula for tightening sewers in Graettinger, Iowa

Comprehensive, Pro-Active Grouting Program Produces Dramatic Reduction of Wastewater Volume and Treatment Costs

Avanti Underground Construction 2006

  • Sewer system management in Newtown, PA credits use of a new, comprehensive, pro-active chemical grouting program rehabilitation by minimizing infiltration from pipe and joint failure.

ICGA Completes First Grout Boot Camp

Dick Schantz, Aries Industries NASSCO Times 2006

  • The International Chemical Grout Association (ICGA) of NASSCO completed the first grout operator training school. Dubbed “Grout Boot Camp”.

Two Dimensional Model Study on Infiltration Control at a Lateral Pipe Joint Using Acrylamide Grout

H. Gurkan Ozgurel, H.A. Gonzalez, and C. Vipulanandan Pipelines 2005 2005

  • In this study, A table top lateral joint model was used to investigate grout movement through soil, when sealing sewer pipe leaks at lateral joints by grouting.

Lateral Sealing in Wisconsin Provides Opportunity for Innovation

Sharon M. Bueno Rehab Showcase 2005

  • The Village of Brown Deer, Wisconsin, just wanted to address an ongoing problem in one of its residential subdivisions that resulted in high inflow and infiltration at one of its interceptor sewers as far back as 1996.

Comparison of Chemical Grout Properties

David Magill and Richard Berry Paper Presented at Geo-Denver 2007 2006

  • This paper is about the current uses of chemical grouts, the economics of product use, and a discussion of where specific products within a category can be used.
