Abstract:
The basic properties of grout, which determine its suitablity for penetration and filling of openings are its flow characteristics, mobility retention, bleeding, particle sizes, and quality after set. These qualities are discussed, particularly flow characteristics, which for grout includes the properties of plasticity and thixotropy. Suggestions are given for evaluating t.he suitability of grout for various field uses based on laboratory tests of these properties.
