4 OUTLINE Introduction Geotextile tube Geotextile containers Geotextile bags Dewatering of waste and contaminated sediments Geomembrane dams Hanging bag test Design of geotextile tube
5 In India, discharge of untreated sewage is the major source for surface water pollution. One out of five sewage treatment plants is non-operational. Sewage generated in cities and towns = 38,000 million liters per day (MLD); Treatment capacity exists = 12,000 MLD only 80% of the water supplied for domestic use come back as waste water. A huge volume of the waste water is discharged to the surface water bodies without any treatment resulting in the deterioration of water quality. To preserve water quality of the surface water bodies, geotextile tubes can be used effectively. (The Times of India, Mumbai, Thursday, September 26, 2013)

7 Geotextile tube, geotextile container and geotextile bag have a lot of potential applications in marine and hydraulic, environmental and agricultural engineering. Mumbai has 720 km coastline. The water pollution is increasing in coastal areas. If the sewage water is discharged to the seashore, river, canal and lake without any scientific procedure, this causes health hazards and pollution. The contaminated sewage water should not be used for the construction and industrialization purposes. Industries dispose huge amount of waste materials, contaminated sediments and/ or byproduct in a contaminated area.
8 The sewage water generated in India is about 6500 million liters per day, out of which only 24.7 percent is treated. India has a vast coastline of 7,517 km. Therefore, it is needed to treat the waste materials before discharging in to the sea, river, lake and canal. The slurry like waste material is very difficult to handle, transport and dispose for the landfilling. The geotextile tube can mainly be used for the dewatering of contaminated sediments, municipal sludge, dredge materials, mining waste and fine grained soil and to protect against soil erosion in river and coast areas, retaining structures, embankments and artificial island.
9 Methane gas generated from the sewage waste can be used for generating electricity. Geomembrane tube can also be used in the seashore for the construction and recreation purpose. The conventional materials like concrete, stone and boulders are generally used for shoreline protection. This kind of geosystem is very expensive and not reliable or safe. On the other hand, the geotextile tube can be filled with locally available materials like sludge or sand. These systems have been used in many countries around the world.
10 In U.S.A., the geotextile tube is used for rehabilitation and protection of the coastal area of the Grand Isle in New Orleans. The geotextile tube is used for strengthening and protection of river bank in Niger delta. In Australia, geotextile tubes have been exclusively used for ocean protection. Geotextile tubes have also been used for erosion control in Kolkata port trust, India.
11 Marine and Hydraulic Engineering Geotextile tube is useful for the reclamation of sand and to protect the islands, coastlines or shoreline offshore structures like dikes, jetties and beachfronts from erosion and wave attacks. Artificial islands can be created for playing games and also can be habitat for wildlife and birds.
12 Environmental Engineering There are lots of environmental problems appeared from industrial sludge, municipal sludge and hazardous contaminated soils. These kinds of wastes are generated from industrial plants, chemical manufacturing plants, sewage treatment plants, power plants, paper mills and sugar mills. Many industries pollute the rivers, ports, docks and harbors. All kinds of contaminated wastes can be pumped into the geotextile tube for dewatering at the site. This is very cost effective solution.
13 Agricultural Engineering The agricultural wastes generated from dairy and hog farms can be inserted into the geotextile tubes for dewatering. When dewatering is completed, the solid particles can be collected from geotextile tube and can be used to fertilize crops as well as for various land applications.
14 GEOTEXTILE TUBE Geotextile tubes are made of woven, non-woven or jute geotextiles. Length and diameter of the tubes are greater than 6.5 m and 2.5 m respectively. The geotextile tubes are filled with slurry of sand and water and any other related filling materials with the aid of hydraulic or mechanical methods. Geotextile tubes can be applied in revetments - exposed and submerged, offshore breakwater, protection dykes, containment dykes, training walls, and groynes (After Lawson, 2006, 2008).
15 Typical geotextile tube
17 Side view Three dimensional view Geotextile tube on scour apron in a sea bed with anchor tube on both sides
18 Geotextile tube can be used in the coastal or river zones. Before placing the geotextile tube over sea bed, a layer of scour apron made of geotextile is to be placed on the foundation soil and anchored at both ends with the help of filled geotextile tubes. It can protect the foundation from wave attack and also acts as a filter material.
19 Geotextile tube and mattress for shoreline protection
20 The overlap for geotextile tube is 1.5 m. The gradation of filling material can be performed as per ASTM D 422. Diameter of the discharge pipe is about 160 mm to 300 mm. The height to width ratio of geotextile tube should not be more than 0.5. The discharge pressure on geotextile tube filled with port sand should not be more than 40 kpa. As the geotextile tube is permeable, excess pore water pressure dissipates and the filling materials get compacted. In fact, shape of the geotextile tubes gets changed after placing over a flat and solid surface.
21 Parameters associated with Geotextile tube (a) before installation (b) after installation (Lawson, 2006) D = diameter of Geotextile tube before installation c = circumference of Geotextile tube before installation H = height of Geotextile tube after installation W = width of Geotextile tube after installation A = Cross-section of Geotextile tube after installation, b = base width after installation, σ v = average vertical stress

23 Three major properties should be confirmed before installation of geotextile tube. Mechanical property of geotextile tube (i.e. tensile strength and stiffness) Hydraulic property of geotextile tube (i.e. permittivity, apparent opening size and discharge capacity), and Durability (i.e. design life of geotextile)
24 Tensile strength of geotextile tube Tensile strength of geotextile tube has three directions: Tensile strength along circumferential direction (T c ) Tensile strength along axis or length direction (T a ) Tensile strength along the filling port direction (T p ) (After Lawson, 2006)
25 Lawson (2006) followed the Palmerton s procedure (2002) to determine the relationship between maximum T c and maximum T a for filled tube. The maximum allowable tension (T max ) a = 0.63 x maximum circumferential tension (T max ) c The port connection (T p ) c = 0.3 x (T max ) c
26 Hydraulic properties of geotextile tube Hydraulic properties of geotextile tube depend on the hydraulic environment and also on the period of exposure. Lawson (2006) reported the hydraulic properties of geotextile for geotextile tubes and also the protections required according to hydraulic regime.
27 Hydraulic regime Still, or slow moving water Water current < 1.5 m/s Water current 1.5 m/s Waves < 1.5 m Waves 1.5 m Period of exposure to hydraulic regime Intermittent Continual No protection required. AOS 0.5 mm, q n, L/m 2.s No protection required. AOS D 85 fill, q n, L/m 2.s No protection required, but some change in shape may occur after repeated events. AOS D 85 fill, q n, L/m 2.s No protection required. AOS D 50 fill, q n, L/m 2.s No protection required, but considerable change in shape may occur after repeated events. AOS D50 fill, q n, L/m 2.s No protection required. AOS 0.5 mm, q n, L/m 2.s No protection required. AOS D 85 fill, q n, L/m 2.s Protection required and some change in shape may occur. AOS D 50 fill, q n, L/m 2.s No protection required, but change in shape may occur over time. AOS D 50 fill, q n, L/m 2.s Protection required and change in shape may occur. AOS D 50 fill, q n, L/m 2.s Note: AOS = apparent opening size of the geotextile tube skin; q n,100 = volume flow rate at 100 mm constant head through the geotextile tube skin. (Lawson, 2006)
28 Geotextile tubes can perform in a variety of hydraulic regimes except where continual water current is greater than 1.5 m/s and continual wave height is greater than 1.5 m. In extreme hydraulic environment, additional protection is required for the geotextile tube to perform acceptably. Examples of additional protection measures can be rock armour or wire gabions and mattresses placed around the exposed surface of the geotextile tube.
29 (a) (b) Marine and hydraulic applications of the geotextile tube: (a) Revetment (b) Geotextile tube containment dyke (After Lawson, 2006)
32 GEOTEXTILE CONTAINERS Geotextile container is made of woven (450 gm/m 2 ) and/or nonwoven geotextile (650 gm/m 2 ). The tensile strength of geotextile is generally greater than 60 kn/m. The length of geotextile tube is unlimited and circumference varies from 1m to 15 m. Normally, volume of geotextile container is about 450 m 3 and depth is about 25 m.
33 Installation of geotextile container (After Pilarczyk, 2000)
34 Firstly, the geotextile containers made of high strength geotextile is placed on an empty split bottom barge and filled up with river or harbor bottom sediments. The geotextile is then folded and stitched along the entire length of geotextile container. The barge is placed properly at the exact location for damping of the geotextile container at the disposal site. Next, the split-bottom barge is opened to drop the geotextile container at the bottom of the sea bed.
35 DEWATERING OF WASTE AND CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS Fowler et al. (1996) used geotextile tube for dewatering of the municipal sewage sludge. In lake or river side, the geotextile tube can be used for dewatering the contaminated sediments Apart from contaminated lake side, the dewatering process can be applied to municipal waste sludge and water treatment, mining waste, industrial waste, agricultural farm waste,organic compounds and heavy metal, pesticides e.g. lead, zinc, mercury, copper, arsenic etc.
36 Dewatering procedure of slurry from a contaminated lake
37 Firstly, the dredge cutter head is to be placed on the lake bed contaminated with sediments. Secondly, the waste is dredged from the lake bed and pumped through a pipe line to the geotextile tube. The geotextile tube is kept on a gravel platform covered with geotextile and geomembrane. The geomembrane will act as an impermeable membrane to save the ground bed from pollution. Geomembrane may damage due to the gravel layer. The geotextile acts as a cushion to protect the geomembrane from damage.
38 During dewatering, the excess water drains out from the tube and sent to the water treatment plant for further treatment. The treated water may be recycled to the lake. After completion of dewatering, the volume of geotextile tube gets reduced. The tube is cut, opened as well as the solid is collected. The solid waste can be recycled or disposed of the landfill or can be used for land development or as fertilizer for crops. The dewatering process is one of the best methods for quick removal of solids from waste slurry.
39 Kutay and Aydilek (2004): Geotextile dewatering performance is independent of AOS and permittivity Higher slurry water content and higher fines results in more piping Use of double layer of geotextiles can increase retention and enhance dewatering Koerner and Koerner (2003 and 2006): AOS is a poor predictor of geotextile tube dewatering performance Flow rate was found to be proportional to sediment permeability Hanging bag test was recommended to determine dewatering performance with in-situ sediments
40 Some major benefits of geotextile tube: Geotextile tube has suitable apparent opening sizes and is very good as a permeable filtration material. It can contain huge volume waste slurry or bio-solids as well as dewatering of the slurry can be very fast. Geotextile tube can be cut to remove and dispose the solid particles to the construction site for land development or in the landfill.
41 Effective high volume containment Efficient dewatering and volume reduction Cost effective No special equipment required Custom site specific fabrication Lesser equipment cost Less maintenance required Less labor cost
42 GEOMEMBRANE DAMS 1) Inflatable dam (open closed type) 2) Parachute dams (closed open type) Inflatable dams can be used for irrigation and water regulation (Tam, 1998). The inflatable dam is connected with a foundation and fixed with bolts and nuts to a steel frame. It is a cylindrical tube made of synthetic membrane and filled with water, air or combination of both. The height of the tube can be varied by increasing or decreasing the internal pressure with the aid of a pump
43 In parachute dams, the upper end is connected with a floating boom and restrained by guys (Watson, 1985). - Estuarial lands can be reclaimed by using geomembrane bags filled with inexpensive materials such as dredged soils, cheap rock fill materials. Inflatable dam Parachute dams (After Watson, 1985; Tam, 1998 and Pilarczyk, 2000)
