Abstract:
Structures and foundations damaged by weather, erosion, scour, or settlement have been restored and strengthened by ingenious methods involving the pumping of cement-base stabilizing material into small interstices and the filling of larger spaces by aggregate which is then embedded in the stabilizing material under pressure. Herein are described several applications of the methods to various structures including bridge piers and abutments, reservoirs, dams, and underwater construction.
