An experimental study was carried out on grout samples prepared from both Stratabinder and BU100 cementitious products. Samples were prepared with various water to grout ratios and tested for uniaxial compressive and shear strength. Triaxial tests were performed on cylindrical samples to determine values for internal friction angle, cohesion and tensile strength. It was found that the water to cement ratio affects the uniaxial compressive and shear strength of grout. The triaxial test indicated that both internal friction angle and cohesion of Stratabinder do not differ significantly from BU100.
