A laboratory-floor experimental study was conducted on the electrochemical treatment of calcareous sand for offshore foundations. A steel tube of diameter 200 mm and length 400 mm was used as a model caisson. Calcareous sand and seawater from the coastline of Western Australia were used in the study. Twelve electrodes made of perforated steel pipes, diameter 14 mm, length 450 mm and filled with soluble CaCl2 granules as a cementing agent, were installed around the caisson. The electrochemical… CONTINUE READING
