Improved Vacuum Preloading Method for Consolidation of ...

Nov 11, 2016· This method adopted both a vacuum and an air-pressurizing system. In the vacuum system, a new connector to connect each prefabricated vertical drain (PVD) directly to a horizontal vacuum pipe is used in lieu of a horizontal sand blanket. In the air-pressurizing system, compressed air is injected into the soil to accelerate consolidation.

Aug 05, 2014· Regular dredging is necessary for the development of coastal regions and the maintenance of shipping channels. The dredging process dislodges sediments from the seabed, and the removed materials, termed dredged marine soils, are generally considered a geowaste for dumping. However, disposal of the dredged soils offshores can lead to severe and irreversible impact on the …

Dredging - Wikipedia

Dredging is the excavation of material from a water environment. Possible reasons for dredging include improving existing water features; reshaping land and water features to alter drainage, navigability, and commercial use; constructing dams, dikes, and other controls for streams and shorelines; and recovering valuable mineral deposits or marine life having commercial value.

Dredge | Clean Earth

When we process dredged material, we begin by decanting excess water off of the dredged sediments. The sediment is a location-specific mixture of sand, silt, clay, and organic matter. Our processing services include dewatering, stabilization, screening, and debris removal for both clean and contaminated non-hazardous dredged material.
