Abstract
The bi-layer diaphragm wall, a new type of wall, consists of two concrete layers, the first of which is poured and the second sprayed, in different construction stages. A major aim of the research conducted is to maximize the functional attributes of the second layer, enhancing both structural performance and watertightness. The central objective of this study is to corroborate the structural behaviour of these walls in experimental and numerical terms. It follows a three-step methodology: a ful...
