Grouting for Reservoir Dams - Good Practice Guide (CIRIA), London

Watch this event

In the UK, good practice guidance on all aspects of grouting at dams is limited. To address this current lack of guidance, this publication has been developed by providing a standalone good practice guide for grouting at UK dams.

The guide is organised into 11 largely self-contained chapters, each focusing on an essential element of grouting for new and existing dams, with emphasis placed on grouting at UK dams. The chapters cover investigation, design, grouting materials and processes, drilling and grouting plant, quality control of grout mixes and case histories. There is also coverage of environmental matters and contract considerations.

The guide is aimed at reservoir owners and reservoir safety engineers concerned with the design of new dams, remedial works at existing dams, and those responsible for the inspection, monitoring, investigation, maintenance and repairs of dams and service reservoirs.

This presentation will aim to highlight elements of the various chapters.
