|Abstract(s):||The presence of cracks debilitates the structural performance of rammed earth. Grout injection is a repair solution put forward recently, where compatibility issues demand using mud grouts. Little is known on this topic, whereby an experimental program on the mechanical effectiveness of grout injection for repairing cracks in rammed earth was performed. Specimens tested under bending and diagonal compression were retested after repair with injection of mud grouts. Mud grouts incorporating the original soil of the rammed earth are shown to perform better and their injection achieves satisfactory shear strength recovery, but is less effective in recovering initial shear stiffness.|
