Grout is a particularly fluid form of concrete used to fill gaps. It is generally a mixture of water, cement, and sand which can be employed in pressure grouting, embedding rebar in masonry walls, connecting sections of precast concrete, filling voids, and sealing joints such as those between tiles. It is well known that the strength of grout is influenced by many factors such as the quality of raw materials, water/cement ratio and coarse/fine aggregate ratio. Inaccurate estimation of one or more of these factors inevitably leads to poor grout (or lower-than-expected grout strength). The objective of this paper is to review the methods to optimise, improve and enhance the performance and workability of cement grout in concrete repair. Previous studies have stated that the performance and workability of cement grout are influenced by the type of admixture added and the properties of cement grout. Different cement grout properties will result in different strength values.
