Abstract: This proceedings, Grouts and Grouting: A Potpourri of Projects, consists of papers presented at sessions sponsored by the Geo-Institute in conjunction with the ASCE Annual Convention held in Boston, Massachusetts, October 18-21, 1998. These papers discuss unusual case studies where grouting was used to address widely different situations. Projects involve mines, tunnels, dams, walls, sinkholes, historic buildings, river banks, and earthquakes. The types of grouting involved are jet, displacement, and permeation, while the types of grout are cement, chemical, and microfine cement. Unusual monitoring and control methods are involved in some of the case studies.
