Principles, and why GC's work

GC’s in a nutshell …..

 

 

About the Ground Consolidators (GC’s):

 

GCs are wire-shaped, angular elements. When dumped, they interlock and form a strong, open framework

Proven applications in civil engineering: GC’s are used in layers (erosion protection, dike reinforcement) or in volumes (reefs, dams).

GC’s make a sustainable solution, and are preferably made of (bio-)composites, either or not degradable.
GC’s can be made in cradle-to-cradle cycli

 

Typical application: if used under water sedimentation will occur. A GC layer will collect sand and create a package that protects lower layers against erosion. GC layers can be used for prevention of erosion or for repair of eroding spots.. .
