Grout Design and Analysis

Laboratory Testing Programs

ECO has performed numerous lab testing programs to evaluate new technologies, to develop and optimize grout formulations for specialized projects/applications, to determine and optimize rheological characteristics and to perform accelerated and delayed aging and compatibility tests.

Standard Tests Performed On Grout Formulations:

  • density by Bariod mud balance.
  • viscosity by Marsh funnel
  • cohesion by shear vane
  • initial cure by Vicat needle
  • measurement of pressure filtration coefficient
  • bleed tests
  • unconfined compressive strength test
  • accelerated aging tests
  • compatiblity with specific chemical/physical environments
  • Sutometer test on cement foam formulations
