There is not an exact ratio for each kind of soil. It depends from many factors that could change for every geological and geotechnical situation. Anyway the grouting should be similar to the soil even if is not really possible to match both characteristics. Approximate Cement/Water/Bentonite mix ratio are: – for hard and medium soil: […]
If the water filled casing is lighter than grout backfill the uplift force of grout varies with the height of the grout column. If the column is short, the uplift force is low and the casing can be held in place by its own weight or with very little down-force applied from the top. When […]
FAQ#023 – For obtaining best results with inclinometer, must the borehole be very close to the vertical?
