The use of geotextile for slope strengthening was proven based on the investigation and report by Kuwano, Miyata, and Koseki (2014). Therefore, this research examines the impact of geotextile application on slope stability in newly-elevated area in Yuriage, Natori City, Japan. This project discussed the analysis of geotextile-reinforced slope by...

A new trend to found offshore wind turbines at larger depths or on harder soils is to apply gravity based foundations (GBFs). These foundations are caissons with a set of properties which are different with respect to other caisson types. The number of constructed caissons is large and the timeframe for construction and transportation from land...

The introduction of the new 'Waterwet' led to the retesting of a lot of primary flood defences within the Netherlands, sequentially certifying a lot of levees as unsafe regarding inner slope stability. To test or design a levee an adequate amount of soil investigation is required to indicate the presence of different soil types, stratification...

PLAXIS study of a primary flood defence in the Netherlands. The influence of water level, precipitation, and wave overtopping on the position of the phreatic surface is being investigated. The hydraulic loads are applied to a clay dike with a cracked top layer and a sand dike with a cracked clay cover. The findings are related to the current...

In 2009 and 2010, two leakages through immersion joints occurred in the First Coen Tunnel near Amsterdam. From the study on t-he cause of these leakages, it followed that there was a potential problem for existing immersed tunnels: failure of the temporary Gina-seal combined with corrosion on the clamping structure of the definitive Omega-seal....

TheNetherlands is a densely populated country and is located in an areawhere the shallowsubsurfacemainly consists ofHolocene and Pleistocene soils. To build permanent structures, enough bearing capacity is needed to provide sufficient support for these structures. However, Holocene (soft) soils typically do not provide sufficient support. In the...

Due to increased traffic density, there is a tendency to construct larger immersed tunnels with larger tunnel elements both in transversal and longitudinal direction resulting in a more critical design of the joints. Especially for those tunnels with relatively soft foundation and high siltation, there is no mature experience for reference. This...

In March 2016, an addendum to the Dutch design guideline for micropiles, CUR 236, was published. This addendum elaborated on the ‘axial stiffness of micropiles’. The softening behaviour was here first mentioned as an aspect relevant for the axial stiffness of the micropiles. Due to the slender geometry of the micropiles, this further translates...

Significant development of Jakarta infrastructure is necessary to keep up with the economic growth. For the new Jakarta underground rail network, imminent extension of the North-South Line Phase 1 (NSL-P1) tunnel heads towards the northern part of city. One of the engineering challenges that exist in the area is the substantial amount of...
