Rheology Limits for Grout Materials Used for Precast Bent Cap Pile Pockets in Hot Weather
The Florida Department of Transportation has released a report that evaluates grouted pile pocket connections in the development of specifications for prefabricated elements and systems. During the pilot project to address the U.S. Federal Highway Administration Every Day Counts initiative, grout material was wasted due to the restrictive temperature range and flow rate limitations, or due to inadequate sealing of the connection point. This research explores ways to eliminate that waste.
