  • Structural behaviour of RC beams externally strengthened in flexure with SRG and SRP systems

    This paper presents the results obtained from an experimental investigation carried out on a set of reinforced concrete beams strengthened in flexure by using an unidirectional high–strength carbon steel fibre reinforcing mesh embedded in an inorganic matrix (SRG: steel reinforced grout) and in an organic matrix (SRP: steel reinforced polymer). Test parameters include the use or not of external ...

  • Jet Grouting to construct a Soilcrete wall using a twin stem system

    Abstract: An existing coal-loading pier located in Norfolk, Virginia was completed in 1961 for the purpose of loading ocean-going ships with coal for export throughout the world. The size of the ships that could be fully loaded at this facility was limited to the depth of the mud line adjacent to the loading pier. It was determined that dredging adjacent to the pier would provide an increase ...

  • Parbucking the Costa Concordia - Case Study

    Global Diving & Salvage, Inc. was contracted by Titan / Maricopa, JV to assist with the largest salvage project (by weight) in history, the salvaging of the Costa Concordia which ran aground off Isola del Giglio, Italy. The initial phase of the project required ‘righting’ the vessel which lay on its starboard side. Divers from 26 countries were brought in to prepare the vessel for ...

  • Horse Mesa Dam, Units 1 - 4 Intake Repairs - Case Study

    Global Diving & Salvage, Inc was contracted by Salt River Project (SRP), operator of Horse Mesa Dam, located 65 miles northeast of Phoenix, AZ, to provide project management and diving services to make repairs of Units 1 through 4. The work on Unit 4, located in 160 feet of water, and on Units 1, 2, and 3, located in 260 feet, necessitated the use of saturation divers. ...

  • Try Floor Steamers If Looking For Tile and Grout Cleaning Machines

    Tile and grout floors are used worldwide in residential, commercial, and industrial settings, primarily due to their durable nature. However, it is imperative to thoroughly clean the floors to maintain its shiny and gleaming looks. In high traffic areas and industrial settings, tile floors can quickly get dirty and slippery. Traditional cleaning techniques, such as mopping, scrubbing, and wiping, ...

  • Three Tips to Buy the Best Grout Steam Cleaner

    Grout steam cleaners are among the best machines for cleaning tile and grout. Their high temperature outputs make them the most attractive machines for many hard surface cleaning tasks. These days, almost every cleaning machine is made for specialized tasks. The problem with the specialization is that people without sufficient know-how in the cleaning industry might end up buying a machine for a ...

  • Tile Cleaning Machines that Signal a New Era in Grout and Tile Cleaning

    Many people may be unaware of the difference that tile cleaning machines offer when compared to conventional cleaning methods. The task of cleaning grout and tiles is a difficult one. Tile and grout are found in many places, from homes to commercial areas to industrial areas as well. Most of these places use tile because they are thought to be easier to clean than most other surfaces. Water ...

  • Test Procedures to Evaluate Absorption and Swelling of Grout

    Described in this paper are test procedures and resulting data used in the laboratory to evaluate the absorption of water and the swelling pressures of several different mixtures of a particular acrylate grout when placed in situ. The water absorption characteristics were determined for both neat grout and grouted sand under conditions of either free swell or moderate confinement. Swelling ...

  • Effect of Preparation Technique on Permeability and Strength of Cement-Grouted Sand

    The effectiveness of cement grouting is generally evaluated in terms of the improvement attained in the engineering properties of the grouted soil. Although this degree of improvement should logically be related to the amount of cementitious particles present in the pore spaces of the grouted sand, and indeed is to some extent, the method of preparing the specimens can exert an even stronger ...

  • Cyclic Undrained Behavior and Liquefaction Potential of Sand Treated with Chemical Grouts and Microfine Cement (MC-500)

    The effect of chemical grouting on the response of sand to monotonic and cyclic load is evaluated. Triaxial compression (CD and CU) tests and cyclic triaxial tests are performed to evaluate the effect of chemical grouting on the potential for liquefaction flow failure, initial liquefaction, and 5% cyclic mobility. The influence of selected material parameters and test variables (i.e., grout ...

  • Laboratory Testing of Chemically Grouted Sand

    The effect of 14 parameters, associated with specimen preparation, handling, and testing, and with soil characteristics, was evaluated experimentally for laboratory prepared specimens of chemically grounted sands. Over 200 unconfined compression tests were conducted, and results are presented and comparisons are made in terms of unconfined compressive strength and tangent modulus at 50% of ...

  • A Constant Normal Stiffness Direct Shear Device for Static and Cyclic Loading

    A device has been designed and built to carry out both static and cyclic direct shear tests on specimens of soil and rock and on interfaces of soil or rock and construction materials. The device has the special capability of allowing the shear deformation to proceed under conditions of constant normal stiffness. This is in contrast to the more conventional direct shear devices, which permit ...
