Unique Capabilities & Support

TenCate offers support for Geotube projects with four proprietary software programs. These programs provide preliminary output data to ensure proper groundwork for dewatering and shoreline protection projects. Contact any one of our experienced Geotube Market Managers in the U.S., Europe, or Asia to assist you with your project.

The Geotube Estimator is designed to take known volume or known flow input values of a particular slurry type and calculate the number of lineal feet of Geotube containers required, by circumference, to dewater the material to an identified solids level. Dewatered volumes, number of pumping days, and dry tons are also part of the output.

The Geotube Simulator1 creates a scale dimensional cross section image for any given Geotube circumference and height. The program also analyzes the volume for this cross section as well as the maximum stresses on a variety of Geotube2 engineered textile and seams for any defined slurry fill material for both emerged and submerged conditions.

The Geotube Illustrator takes a defined footprint and combines it with the volume of material to be dewatered. It then calculates the number of Geotube units, number of stacked layers, quantity of filtration fabric, and impermeable liner material required to complete the project.

The Geotube Stacking Analyzer identifies the maximum stresses on the Geotube units at the critical locations for a variety of the stacking alternatives. This output is based on Geotube dimensions and the number of stacked layers for any given type of slurry fill material.

In-depth, convenient, and cost saving, these proprietary software programs insure that each and every Geotube project is successful for the customer.
