The article focuses on a new grouting technique for filling holes drilled during site investigation. The holes are grouted as the drill is withdrawn from the hole, instead of filled later. The technique is called cone penetrometer retraction grouting. The authors discuss the technique, its performance in various soil conditions and the proper materials to use in the grout.
