Grouting comprises a group of closely related technologies which share in common the introduction of cement or a cement-like, insoluble compound, usually under pressure, into an existing structure or into soil or rock to achieve some sort of improvement in performance or durability. Typical examples would found in the use of cement injected into voids and cracks in a concrete structure so as to strengthen it or to make it waterproof or the use of cement injected into an area of excavated soil so as to give the soil greater load-resistance and more stability.
