Publication Abstract: 

Laboratory investigation was undertaken to develop high-performance cement-based grouts for infiltrating fiber-reinforced cementitious composites that makes them ideally suited for structural repair and seismic retrofit. The rheological and mechanical properties of the proposed grouts are interesting since, from a practical point of view, they exhibit no bleeding or segregation and reach high compressive strength and flowability. This study recommends the use of natural pozzolan in combination with silica fume in the production of high-performance cement-based grouts for providing technical and economical advantages in specific local uses in concrete industry.
