Abstract : The development and the placement of grouts in support of underground nuclear experiments is described. Support consists of consultation services for grouting programs; development of grout mixtures to meet experimental requirements, i.e., stemming of nuclear devices in deep drilled holes; coupling to formations associated instrumentation emplaced in deep holes drilled in various rock and alluvium formations; as massive plugs in shafts and tunnels; as shock-mitigation material behind tunnel liners, etc. Problems experienced and resolution of such problems are described.
