When Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW) needed to upgrade their fuel tank farm storage facility, the project engineers, Burns & McDonnell Engineering, decided to use the same lagoon liner which they had successfully installed at a similar upgrade project at the SeaTac airport in the Seattle/Tacoma area.
The GEOWEB® System including pre-drilled, texturized GEOWEB sections, ATRA clips, tendons and the specified stapling system were delivered in December of 1998. In January, layout crews began the process of setting up the GEOWEB tendon anchor system.
Sections were first placed, then pre-threaded with tendons and then expanded into place and stapled at the seams. The ATRA clip system was used as a restraint clip at specified intervals on the tendon. With the GEOWEB cells open and anchored, the wet concrete would be held in place by the GEOWEB system.
