Development of Proof of Concept for Conducting Tests Alike Pickle Jar Test on Avanti Grout Material

Description :  

Avanti International is the nation’s only full-service provider and most experienced supplier of high-quality chemical and cement grouts. When applied, Avanti Grouts can improve joint seals of the VCPs or concrete pipes.

The objective of the proposed research is to develop a proof of concept for conducting tests like a Pickle Jar Test (PJT) suggested by the City of Los Angeles on Avanti Grout Material.

The research work will be conducted on a plastic pipe with representative crack, hole, spall or joint separation which will be sealed by the grout material.

The preliminary test on one (1) sample will provide data which will be used for establishment of the proof of concept. Based on the results obtained in this phase, a complete test will be performed on the product.
