Abstract
The bi-layer diaphragm wall is a new type of slurry wall, designed to improve watertightness and to counter leakage problems. These walls consist of two bonded concrete layers: the first, a conventional Reinforced Concrete (RC) diaphragm wall and the second, a sprayed Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) layer with a waterproof additive. Here, we analyse and quantify the influence of different construction process parameters on the effectiveness of the bi-layer diaphragm wall technique. Thirty...
