ASCE Holds Public Comment Period on Guideline
March 5, 2008

The American Society of Civil Engineers’ Geo-Institute (ASCE/G-I) recently announced it will conduct a public comment period on its new compaction grouting guideline. The public comment period will be held from February 20, 2008 through May 7, 2008.

Working with the belief that compaction grouting is a reliable methodology for improving the density and strength of soil, the guideline provides background on specifications, designs and implementation. The guideline covers mechanics and materials, grouting in the field, subsurface investigation for compaction grouting, design and analysis, and verification of grouting effectiveness collection systems and applications.

To participate in the public comment period, contact Phillip Mariscal, ASCE standards administrator, at or (703) 295-6338. For more information on this standard, or ASCE’s standards program, please contact Karen Albers at or (703) 295-6404.
