The author takes a practical approach to the subject of grouting and concentrates on areas such as the types of drilling, mixing and pumping equipment, and their application. The guidebook's primary focus is on the cementitious grouting used in conjunction with the excavation and lining of tunnels, shafts and underground caverns in rock. Overviews of cementitious grouting in soils and chemical grouting are also provided.
