Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report focuses on laboratory tests performed by the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) to evaluate the performance of three geotextiles with four soils from the Bonnet Carre Spillway area. The purpose of this evaluation was to produce methodologies to assess the feasibility and value of using geotextiles under conditions that exist in the US Army Engineer District, New Orleans. Laboratory-measured parameters of the geotextilejsoil systems in question are compared with prototype field tests and used in the analysis of full-size soil structures to evaluate configurations for strength, economy, and effectiveness. This report focuses on the equipment, performance, and results of the WES laboratory study.
