An experimental and numerical study has been carried out to help develop design guidelines for the construction of low-cost river bank protection using geobags. Building upon previous work, a 1:10 scale model was tested in a laboratory flume, comparing two different construction methods (running bond and stack bond), subjected to three different water depths. It was found that whilst the failure pattern was highly dependent on water depth, the construction method had no noticeable impact… Expand

Modelling the failure modes in geobag revetments.
TLDR
The aim of the research reported here is to develop a detailed understanding of the failure mechanisms in a geobag revetment using a discrete element model (DEM) validated by laboratory data. Expand
Performance of a Geobag Revetment. I: Quasi-Physical Modeling
AbstractIn recent years, sand-filled geotextile bags (geobags) have become a popular means of long-term riverbank protection. However, the associated failure mechanisms of geobag revetments are stillExpand
Flume Experiment and Numerical Analysis for Bank Reinforcement with Geocontainer
In China, dumped riprap is used for emergency elimination of bank collapse in large rivers. However, the riprap collapses due to washing and scouring in flood period. Geocontainer is applied toExpand
IMPORTANT ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF GEOTEXTILE SAND CONTAINERS AND THEIR EFFECT ON THE HYDRAULIC STABILITY OF GSC STRUCTURES
  • 2012
As a result of their numerous advantages, Geotextile Sand Containers (GSC) are getting increasingly popular as an alternative to conventional hard (e.g., rock, concrete) coastal structures.Expand
Processes affecting the hydraulic stability of coastal revetments made of geotextile sand containers
Abstract Softer and flexible protection alternatives, such as structures made of geotextile sand containers (GSC) are often used instead of hard coastal structures made of concrete or rubbleExpand
Process based stability formulae for coastal structures made of geotextile sand containers
Abstract Geotextile Sand Containers (GSC) are increasingly used worldwide for shore protection structures such as seawalls, groins, breakwaters, revetments and artificial reefs. However, reliableExpand
Geotextile bag revetments for large rivers in Bangladesh
Abstract Since the late 1990s, riverbank revetments constructed of sand-filled geotextile bags (geotextile bags) have been developed in Bangladesh in response to the lack of traditionalExpand
Sand-filled Geotextile Containers for Shore Protection
In search for soft, sustainable and easily reversible coastal protection measures a concept was found which was already applied to close a dike line during the end of the 1950. Since that time sandExpand
Geobag Performance as Scour Countermeasure for Bridge Abutments
This paper presents observations and data from a sequence of laboratory experiments conducted to evaluate geobags as a countermeasure to protect bridge-abutment foundations from failure attributableExpand
Reducing Local Scouring at Bridge Piles Using Collars and Geobags
TLDR
The results showed that using a combination of a steel collar and a geobag yields the most significant scour reduction for the front and rear piles, respectively. Expand
