    Abstract

    Experimental programs were designed carefully and appropriate testing materials were selected for the parametric study on the flow of cement grout through aggregate media during the preplaced aggregate grouting process in concrete construction. Experimental investigations include the testing and evaluation of the viscosity of cement grout, the intrinsic permeability coefficient, and the porosity of the aggregate media. The time dependency and shear history dependency of the rheological properties of the cement grout are incorporated in the viscosity tests so as to be able to simulate more accurately the grouting process. The average shear rate of the flow is estimated from the flow velocity by determining the average nominal radius of the imaginary flow channel from the permeability testing. The resulting parameters include the yield stress and plastic viscosity of the cement grout and their time dependency, intrinsic permeability and porosity of the aggregate media, and the average nominal radius of the imaginary flow channel.
