dry-pack

dry-pack

To ram forcibly a slightly moist portland cement-aggregate mixture into a confined area, as into the space between the top of concrete pier underpinning and the bottom of the building being underpinned. Here the dry-pack serves as a low-shrinkage filler material that transmits the load of the building to the underpinning.
