Newcastle Chapter

Slurry Wall Construction Current Technology and Case Studies

Chris Ryan

Geo-Solutions Inc is a world leader in geotechnical construction, specialising in slurry walls. Geo-Solutions and Menard Bachy as a partnership have completed numerous successful Australian projects including remediation of the former BHP Site in Mayfield. We are fortunate to have Chris in Newcastle in March to deliver a presentation outlining the latest slurry wall technologies and applications. This technology, routinely used in the United States, has many potential applications in Australia. The discussion of slurry walls in the presentation covers uses in areas of environmental and civil works and would be of interest to geotechnical and environmental professionals. A variety of applications will be covered including:

  • Landfills
  • Attenuation of groundwater contamination plumes
  • Groundwater isolation
  • Dam and levee remediation
  • Site closures
  • Soil Bentonite Walls
  • Permeable Reactive Barrier Walls
  • Bio-polymer Drains
  • Deep Soil Mixing

Engineers Australia members participating in AGS technical sessions can record attendance on their personal CPD logs. Members should refer to Engineers Australia CPD policy for details on CPD types, requirements and auditing guidelines.
