Design and implementation of dewatering: Belgian guidelines

Artikel bemalingen

When dewatering work is carried out, the roles and responsibilities of the various parties involved are often unclear. A working group, set up in the heart of the TI-KVIV Society ‘Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering’, drew up guidelines to assist the client and designer in the design of a dewatering operation, from the soils survey through to the text of the technical specifications. The guidelines also provide assistance to the client, designer and contractor in aspects concerned with the performance of the dewatering operation. The article briefly describes what one can find in the Dewatering Guidelines: responsibilities, necessary soil surveys, what is included in the study of the designer and recommendations regarding the implementation aspects.
