DFI Glossary/Lexicon

DFI Europe, a regional chapter of the Deep Foundations Institute (DFI), published a combined Glossary/Lexicon that merges the DFI Glossary, which included industry definitions mainly used in North America, with a Lexicon of geotechnical terms based on the English language with translations into several European languages. The CEN (European Committee for Standardization) standard terms are included in the Glossary/Lexicon.

You can view the Glossary/Lexicon as an Excel spreadsheet or you can search for terms on the DFI website. The screen below shows the search results for the word "grout."
