Grouted base connections are a cost effective choice when design criteria will allow for their use. Grout tubes are filled with non-shrink grout (up to 10,000 psi required) prior to panel erection. Dowels protruding from precast are set into wet grout and panel is set at the correct elevation on shims. Grouting under the base of the panel is completed after precast connections have been completed.
