geotechnical engineering Applications

  • Geotechnical Applications

    Pore pressure variability and control is one of the most significant aspects of Geotechnical Engineering practice related to slope stability, underground openings, foundation of heavy structures, and water retention facilities. Pore pressure effects are most often controlled by natural small-scale hydrogeologic details. Characterization and management of pore pressures requires closely-arrayed repeated measurements to determine the effects of these details for design of appropriate mitigation measures, for performance monitoring and control of the selected mitigation measure. Since the late 1970’s the Westbay System has been used on some of the largest landslide studies in the world.

  • Water-blocking geotextiles

    SAF is the key component for a range of geosynthetic membrane fabric technologies – which can be adapted into a wide range of formats – that are used by many industries requiring water-sealant solutions. Such fabrics are designed to act as a barrier to water and help alleviate the problems of flooding. As a fibrous super absorbent it allows for ease of handling, giving rise to exceptionally substantive and even distribution profiles within final fabric construction. As such, geosynthetic membrane fabrics incorporating this technology offer truly unparalleled levels of waterblocking performance. These fabrics have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect and/or drain, and offer many advantages that are extremely important to demanding civil engineering projects. The fact that they can be supplied in rolls is also a huge benefit when being used on large-scale projects.

  • Soil Stabilization

    Problem: Poor load-bearing soils pose a significant problem for transportation and construction needs. Unpaved areas, such as access roads, paths, parking lots, driveways, etc can be highly vulnerable to near-surface shear failure and rutting, especially in moist conditions or areas with higher expected loads. Typically, engineers bridge over weak soils with rigid structures such as thick, reinforced concrete for roads and highways. However, such techniques are prohibitively expensive and inordinately difficult to install. The poorer the quality of the sub-base and the heavier the expected loads, the greater the amount and better the quality of support required.
