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.
At the conclusion of this course, the student will:
