Sam Bandimere

Mr. Bandimere has more than 40 years of field and management experience for geotechnical grouting and associated-specialty drilling projects. In 1975, Mr. Bandimere founded a specialty grouting company which became instrumental in the development of the Compaction Grouting’s Denver System. In 1996, Mr. Bandimere sold his grouting company and became a specialty international field grouting consultant. His establishment of the field demos for the Fundamentals of Grouting Course facilitated numerous technical papers and the advancement of compaction grouting and permeation grouting applications. In 2016, Mr. Bandimere was chosen to be chairman of the ASCE Geo-Institute’s Committee, charged with the update to the Compaction Grouting Consensus Guide. Mr. Bandimere was one of the founding members of the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI), a former member of the ACI Grouting Committee 552, and since 1985 has been an active member of the ASCE Grouting Committee. In January of 2023 Mr. Bandimere was inducted into the ASCE/DFI “Grouting Greats” Hall of Fame.

Course Title: Soil Grouting Basics and Forensic Engineering

Delivery Method: Live Online

Course Description: This course focuses on the science, technology, applications, benefits and drawbacks of soil grouting. The course begins with an examination of the means, methods, challenges and solutions of soil stabilization and ground improvements before analyzing the technology and application. Different types of soil grouts will also be analyzed for their advantages, disadvantages and uses. Lastly, the course discusses soil grouting applications and case studies.

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objective 1: Learners will be able to identify challenges of soil stabilization such as bearing capacity and slopes, and assist with on-site soil investigates and identification of potential solutions.

Learning Objective 2: Learners will be able to analyze the technology, application, benefits and drawbacks of permeation grouting, compaction grouting, jet grouting and fracture grouting.

Learning Objective 3: Learners will be able to identify types of soil grouts, including cementitious, clay, asphalt and chemical grouts, and explain their advantages, disadvantages and uses.
