Course Description

Since 1979 the Grouting Fundamentals and Current Practice course has covered pressure grouting as a method to improve geotechnical properties 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 some of the most recognized international authorities and leaders in the grouting industry.

Major topics include rheological properties of cementitious and chemical grouts and their respective applications, 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, grouting for underground structures, overburden and rock drilling methods, and field monitoring/instrumentation. The curriculum includes a half-day "hands-on" field demonstration, focusing on compaction and permeation grouting, penetration of ultrafine cements and chemical grouts, computer monitoring, grout mixing, uses of cellular grouts, overburden and rock drilling methods.

The curriculum is suited 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, as well as petroleum engineering personnel involved in well drilling and operations.

"Excellent Course – very pertinent to my business. Excellent Speakers. World Class Team presentations."
-- Tom Bailey, Mainmark Ground Engineering

"I learned a lot. I am from the concrete repair industry, so it opened my eyes up to the complexity of soils we place our structures upon. Good stuff! "
-- Joshua Guidry, Structural Preservation Systems

"I wish to thank all the presenters and organizers for their time out of their busy schedules. I should have attended years ago! "
-- Dominik Gibbon, Cementation Skanska LTD

"I learned the fundamentals I had seen before but did not understand. The class was excellent for seeing how processes work that you can’t really learn other way than to work for a company with the equipment you are learning about."
-- Steve Gapp, MUDTeCH LLC
