Overview

Dam Foundation Grouting: Revised and Expanded Edition provides a state-of-the-practice review of all aspects of drilling and grouting-based technologies used for dam foundation treatment. Like its first edition, this book provides readers with background information and guidance to help them understand and deal more confidently with issues related to the design, construction, supervision, analysis, and review of grouting programs.

This new edition of Dam Foundation Grouting has been revised to reflect contemporary grouting practice and has been substantially enlarged to include coverage of geologic considerations and to address remedial grouting issues. In addition to providing extensive information on grouting technology, equipment, and procedures, it also provides guidance of specifications and contracts. Dam engineers, dam construction engineers, grouting supervisors and inspectors, field personnel of dam safety reviewing agencies, and engineering students will all benefit from this book.

This is an up to date state of the practice for dam foundation grouting. A good resource to explain basic concepts. Fairly good detail. Print quality slightly less than optimal.
