About the event


Geotextile containment has been utilized in a wide variety of hydraulic and marine engineering applications for many years. One of its forms is geotextile tubes, which are long, tubular, sausage- like units that can be formed in situ either on land or in water. The geotextile tubes are made of permeable yet sand-tight geotextile, allowing hydraulic filling of sand into them. Geotextile tubes are often used for a range of marine engineering applications, including revetments, offshore breakwaters, protection dykes, containment dykes, training walls, and groynes.

The speakers will share the design methodology of geotextile tubes along with project case studies in Malaysia, Vietnam and South Korea. The first case study will focus on the use of the geotextile tubes to replace the core of a rock containment dyke in Penang, Malaysia. The second case study will be centred on geotextile tubes used in the construction of an exposed containment dyke in Haiphong, Vietnam. The third case study showcased geotextile tube as a replacement to rock filled polder dyke in Saemangeum, South Korea.
