In this new edition of a text explaining issues related to the design, construction, supervision, analysis, and review of dam grouting programs, grouting consultants Weaver and Bruce have included more detailed and comprehensive coverage of the increasingly important issues of geologic considerations and the design of contemporary grout mixes. They have also expanded the materials concerning drilling technology and factors influencing the effectiveness of grouting and added entirely new chapters on remedial grouting and contracting methods. The discussion of grouting equipment now includes consideration of automated batching equipment and computer-assisted equipment for real-time monitoring and control of grout injection operations. Recommendations related to inspection, records, quality control and assurance, and verification procedures are current as of 2003.
