Abstract [en]

Measuring the rheological properties of cement based grouts and observing the change of the properties with time directly in-line are highly required, however, still unavailable during the grouting operation. The 'Ultrasound Velocity Profiling' combined with 'Pressure Difference' (UVP+PD) method is a promising novel method for determining the rheological properties, e.g. viscosity and yield stress of used grout directly in-line, in real time and in a flowing condition. Followed by a pre-study, a laboratory based set-up consisting a progressive cavity type of pump and a flow loop were used for the experiments. In addition, a data recording system (LOGAC) was used as a reference. A widely used grouting cement, micro fine injektering 30 (IC30) of water to cement ratio 0.6, and 0.7 were used in this study. After performing a series of successful feasibility tests, it was found possible to determine the rheological properties of cement based grouts directly in-line and the change of the properties of cement grout with time was observed. The 'UVP+PD' method was also found an effective tool for the flow visualization, flow measurement and grout pump characterization. The future work of this project will focus on implementing this ultrasound based methodology in the grouting rigs for field applications.
