GEOWEB Benefits for Dam Applications
- Confined in the GEOWEB system, smaller aggregate performs to under the same design shear stress and flow velocity conditions as unconfined rip-rap sized 2-10 times larger. This is a considerable economic and schedule benefit, particularly in areas where large rip-rap is not locally available.
- The GEOWEB structure allows the concrete reinforcement to be designed up to 50% thinner than reinforced concrete. This is a construction advantage because traditionally reinforced-concrete sections are relatively thick and expensive to install.
