Abstract

The two-component backfilling system is the most frequently used method to fill the annular gap created during the shield machine advancement. This gap, due to the head overcut, the shield thickness and conicity and the tail brushes size should be filled continuously in order to avoid mainly surface displacement and linings movements. Nowadays this technology is the most chosen due to operative (both components are chemically and physically stable) and technical (mechanical performance start to grow up just immediately after the injection) advantages that mean money and time saving.The main mechanical parameter used for the two-component grout characterization is the uniaxial compressive strength (UCS). In order to assess this parameter, a laboratory press and suitable hardened samples are needed but, expressly at short curing time, the penetrometer use is also diffused.This research pertains the study of two-component grout uniaxial compressive strength, its evolution in function of time and its correlation with penetrometer tests data.
