Abstract

More than 160 tests were performed to quantify the engineering behavior of AC-400 acrylate polymer grout and to place this behavior in perspective with that of a few other chemical grouts. Neat grout formulations were tested to determine their gel time, viscosity, and water absorption characteristics. Specimens of Ottawa 20-30 sand were injected with AC-400 grout and tested to determine their unconfined compressive strength, triaxial strength and its evolution with axial strain, creep response, water absorption characteristics, and swelling pressure.
