Grouting in Structural Engineering and the Application of Epoxy Resins

The paper briefly describes typical grout applications where the grout properties can be of critical importance, and these properties are summarized The properties of grouts based on Portland cement, polyester resins and epoxy resins are examined and compared. In the specific case of the azimuth motion railfrack of the Mark l radio telescope at Jodrell Bank, the reasons for preferring an epoxy resin grout are established. For that particular application the paper then describes the methods used and the results obtained. P.D. Goodall and H.C. Husband
