Grouting Technology

Course Outline

This online course provides technical criteria and guidance for civil works grouting applications. The contents cover grouting materials, grouting equipment, and grouting applications to various types of structures such as tunnels, chambers and building foundations. The course materials are based entirely on the Engineering Manual EM 1110-2-3506 of US Army Corps of Engineers: Grouting Technology. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
