There is a widespread misunderstanding about the importance of grouted joints in precast structures and the potentially catastrophic consequences of improper design and practice. Additionally, it is very often untrained workers who undertake grouting.
Designed to give practical information to engineers and builders, this Guide outlines considerations and responsibilities of the In-service Designer, Erection Designer, builders, installers and contractors. It also offers typical grouting design and practice scenarios for loadbearing walling elements.
