Edward D. Graf , an innovator in grouting and foundation engineering and founder of a successful soil stabilization company in California, died on Dec. 16, 2009, in Honolulu of lung disease. He was 84. Graf pioneered development and application of several grouting techniques, including compaction grouting and controlled fracture grouting, and held or co-held six pressure-grouting patents. He founded in 1957 Pressure Grout Co. in South San Francisco, which has been involved in more than 1,600 grouting projects in the U.S. and globally. It was sold to an investor group several years ago. Graf was honored for his contributions in 2003 by the Deep Foundations Institute and the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Geo-Institute, with an award given only once a decade. He is also former chairman of ASCE’s grouting committee.
