This paper is the first of two companion papers and presents the results of an experimental investigation undertaken to evaluate the physical and mechanical properties of grouts composed of various mixtures of microfine cement (MC-500) and sodium silicate. The influence of component proportions on the viscosity and gel time are examined. A combination of unconfined compression, Brazilian tensile, and triaxial compression tests are used to evaluate the strength and stiffness of neat microfine cement/sodium silicate grout. The companion paper presents the results of tests conducted on grouted sand.
