Estimating the As-Placed Grout Volume of Auger Cast Piles

The first objective of this research project is to obtain field data from ACIP pile projects to better correlate the measured grout volume to the as-built pile dimensions. A second objective is to develop a more reliable method for estimating grout volume by identifying the variables that affect pile volume other than the simplistic approaches used to date. These variable are likely to include but are not limited to soil type, construction means methods, and types of equipment.
