Geotextile tube applications for construction of the longest sea-crossing bridge in Vietnam
Geotextile tube applications for construction of the longest sea-crossing bridge in Vietnam

Geotextile tubes were indispensable in the bridge building works of the Lach Huyen Port Project. About 27 km of the material was utilised to construct the containment bund of the 620,000 m3 dredged sediment containment facilities.

Geotextile Tubes as a Replacement for Rockfill for the Polder Dike in South Korea
Geotextile Tubes as a Replacement for Rockfill for the Polder Dike in South Korea

Building a Polder Dike using a sand-filled geotextile core with a rock revetment – instead of a rock-filled berm – reduced costs, saved construction time and resulted in a smaller carbon footprint.

No proper design guidelines based on sound science are available for the design of GSC structures. This IADC Young Author Award paper describes on-going research which aims to remedy this.

Feasibility Study Of The Continuous Geotube
Feasibility Study Of The Continuous Geotube

Geotextile tubes or Geotubes® have been applied in coastal engineering for shore protection and breakwaters, and have been used on land and in shallow water. A new method of filling a continuous Geotube® would allow them to be used in rough and relatively deep water.
