The geo-technical quest to couple technical, environmental, and economic innovation, has increased recent attention towards bio-inspired soil strengthening techniques. This thesis presents a proof-of-concept for a coupled clay inhibition and bio-cementation treatment tested in sand-bentonite, referred to as Bio2Cementation. Fine particles are...

Reinforcing levees with traditional methods is becoming more difficult in the Netherlands. Often there is a lack of space near the levee or it is desired that the landscape is maintained. Because of this, alternative methods for reinforcing levees are still sought after (CUR-commissie C141, 2007). In this study, the technical feasibility of a...

Cities are growing and more land is reclaimed. Reclamation is the process of creating new land from ocean, riverbeds or lake beds. New land is created by hydraulic placement of sand. The hydraulically placed fills are characterized by low densities and show a high variety in packing throughout the field. The relative density of the fills depend...

This thesis report presents an investigation of a soil improvement technique that is being executed for a Van Oord project in Kuwait. The soil is improved by the use of a column supported embankment, consisting of sand columns installed in a soft soil layer and a sand platform. The efficiency of this method is defined in terms of stress transfer...

Bentonite is a clay that is used in many industrial applications. Company X required an investigation on the bentonite that is mined by Company Y. Currently Company X produces cat litter only from her bentonite, but other applications might be of economical interest to the company. After scoping down to 4 applications other than cat litter ...

A research was undertaken to find the suitability of Turkish calcium bentonite from the mines of a Company. Four samples of bentonite mines in the {\"U}nye region are researched, the M1, M2, M3 and M4 mine. The suitability of drilling fluid, foundry sand, soil improvement and bleaching earth applications is found through research on the...

Rice husk ash is an attractive pozzolan. Due to its low cost and high activity it has a promising perspective in sustainable construction. In combination with lime, its effect in soil improvement can be equal to cement treatment but its production process consumes much less energy. The main component of the rice husk ash is silica, which is the...

Biogrout is a new method for soil reinforcement, which is based on microbialinduced carbonate precipitation. Bacteria and reactants are flushed through the soil, resulting in calcium carbonate precipitation and consequent soil reinforcement. Bacteria are crucially important in the Biogrout process since they catalyse the reaction. Hence, to...

Jetgroutkolommen worden gevormd door onder hoge druk een groutmengsel in de grond te injecteren. De grond wordt versneden, losgewoeld en vermengd met de gernjecteerde vloeistof. Door de boorbuis roterend te trekken ontstaat een cilindervormig element. Afbankelijk van het gekozen systeem geschiedt het snijden met dezelfde of met een andere straal...
