Storm Cistern Slope Protection with a GCCM

In February 2017, Concrete Canvas® Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat (GCCM) was used for slope protection in a storm cistern in the Airport Industrial Park of Colón in Querétaro, Mexico. The urbanization of the Industrial Park PIA Airport by AM Developers required a rainwater catchment area for infiltration or for its treatment and reuse. This area was thought of as a storm cistern, in which... »

Расчеты армогрунтовой стены на слабом основании

Е.В. Федоренко – Армогрунтовые подпорные стены устраиваются, как правило, в случаях ограниченного места в зоне откосной части насыпи или в виде устоев мостов с раздельными функциями [4]. В тех случаях, когда грунты основания считаются слабыми, АГС устраивают на свайном фундаменте, однако при большой протяженности участка трассы на слабом основании с вертикальным откосом стоимость такой конст... »

Project: HDPE Geomembranes Secure Storage Basin in Mexico

An intense dry season across the state of Aguascalientes, Mexico, led to a water shortage in the community of El Muerto and San Juan. Without sufficient rainfall, the danger was that the future supply from the reservoirs would be incrementally reduced. To be prepared for these eventualities, a storage basin was proposed to collect water, storing it for future use when required. The contractor, San... »
