1 Dec 2009 First results "Chain-dike" experiment


The chaindike failed ! As intended our two test hills failed at overload which allowed us to study the effect of the GC layer in one of the hills. At increasing load a clear difference between the two hills was visible. The Anome hill showed cracks and shifts, but was still more or less intact at a phase where the reference already filled the ditch in front. At further overloading this difference disappeared. Preliminary conlusion is that the principle seems to work. Next step is the excavation of the layer while observing accurately its status.
