11 Nov 2009 Project "Chain-dike" started at IJkdijk

 

Today the work started with determination of the exact position of the hills, and getting the necessary materials on site.

 

In the experiment two hills will be erected on relatively soft soil, and slowly overloaded until failure occurs. One of the hills has a layer of GC's incorporated, intended to keep earth together in the failure process. We will study whether this will prevent or reduce failure processes.

 

Project management is done by Deltares, KWS is the main contractor

 

Progress of the project can be followed at Chaindike-Impressions webpages
