Abstract: Procedure developed whereby contraction joints of arch dams are pressure-grouted, making structure monolithic; metal seals capable of expansion and contraction are installed around peripheries of joints or areas to be grouted so as to hold grout in joint; special systems of piping with outlets to faces of joint are used for conveying fluid grout into joints; abnormal stresses due to grout pressure can be controlled.
