METHOD STATEMENT FOR CONTACT GROUTING INSIDE TUNNEL

1. OBJECTIVE:

The objective of this method statement is to provide detailed step by step procedure for
execution of contact grouting as per the specifications and drawing.

2. EQUIPMENTS CONCRETE LINING:

Following equipments/ accessories will be used for concrete lining:

1. Hydraulic Drill Jumbo - 1 Nos.

2. Grouting Pump with accessories - 1 No.

3. REFERENCE:
a. Good for Construction Drawing issued by KRCL
Sr.No Drawing No. / Document Title
.
1 RT/KR/C 06 Contact grouting details
2 IS : 5878 (Part VII) Code for Grouting

4. METHOD OF GROUTING:
a. As per drawing no. RT/KR/ C 06, the depth of hole shall be 300 mm beyond the
concrete lining into the rock. The dia of hole shall be 38 mm dia. The no. of
holes in one grouting plane is 5 nos. The spacing of holes shall be 3m
staggered pattern.
b. Drilling shall be done with Hydraulic Drill Jumbo / Air compressor.
c. After completion of drilling to the requisite depth, the hole shall be cleaned with
air and water.
d. Before commencing of grouting all pipes, pressure gauge shall be checked.

METHOD STATEMENT FOR CONTACT
GROUTING

e. Testing of hole – Water shall be pumped into a hole through a direct connection
or packer to measure the rate of acceptance of water under pressure.
f. After completion of testing, grouting shall commence with water cement ratio of
1:1. The grouting shall be done at pressure of 2.5 kg/cm 2. The hole at crown at
any section shall be washed / grouted last of all in a plane. Grouting intake shall
be noted for every 10 min interval.
g. The pressure is maintained by adjusting supply / return valve.
h. If intake is heavy sand shall be mixed with grout.
i. Once the grouting of a hole has been commenced it should be continued
without interruption until completion. In general, grouting should be considered
complete when the intake of grout at desired limiting pressure is less than 1
l/min, averaged over a period of 10 min, for pressure 2.5 kg/cm 2
j. In case the grouting of the hole has to be suspended under unavoidable
circumstances, it is to be particularly watched that the grouting intake rate of
the hole when restarted is approximately the same as before. If the difference
exceeds more than 3 Ltr/Min the hole shall be redrilled, rewashed and grouted.
k. Where grout consumption in grouting is heavy a second grout injection after a
suitable time interval shall be done to fill up their gaps caused by shrinkage of
grout.
l. After completion of grouting the grout hole shall be suitably plugged and
surface shall be smoothened.

m. Efficacy of grouting shall be checked with water test. This testing shall be done
by drilling the holes in between grout plane and by testing water intake in this
test hole.
