In the context of the project "Widening of the Juliana Canal" a bottom protection layer is designed by dredging contractor de Vries & Van de Wiel Kust en Oeverwerken. Because part of the channel is embedded in gravel type soil layers and lies above ground water level, a water repellent function of this layer is necessary to prevent seepage.In...

A way to equalize granular rockfill dumps at a sea or river bed is the use of a plough. A plough can be modeled as a set of straight blades in sequence. Several cutting models for dry and saturated sand are present in the literature. In cutting coarse material, the increase in pore water pressures caused by dilatancy of the grain structure play...

The Bremanger Sandstone rock fill is used to form a cobble beach, to build an underwater foundation layer of a sea water breaker and to construct a run -way for a large crane in construction of Maasvlakte 2 (MV2), the extension of Rotterdam harbor. The main purpose of this work is to determine in the laboratory the strength of Bremanger rock...

This study focuses on the shear strength of the Bremanger sandstone used as rockfill for a crane walkway. The rockfill was tested in a small (100*100*40mm) and a medium scale (500*500*400mm) direct shear boxes to quantify the effect of particle size, packing density and uniformity, specimen size, and normal stress on strength. The laboratory...
