STRUCTURAL LIGHTWEIGHT GROUT MIXTURE DESIGN

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Speaker: Fernando S. Fonseca, Brigham Young University

Recent BYU research focused on the design of lightweight grout mixtures that achieve a minimum 28- day compressive strength of 2000 psi, as currently required by ASTM C476 for normal-weight grout. Join Fernando Fonseca as he presents research results related to the effects of aggregate proportion, slump, and aggregate soaking on compressive strength. The need for additional research and possible future lightweight grout standardization will also be discussed.
