水是生命之源, but also can be a very destructive force to unprotected earthen embankments. Protecting these embankments with various concrete and 水泥-based materials resists water’s ability to erode banks and extends their lifespan.
水泥 can be employed in bank protection in a number of ways: through conventional concrete structures, 碾压混凝土, 水泥土壤, concrete pavers and grout-filled mats. These stabilizing materials have been applied in numerous scenarios with proven success: dikes, 堤坝, 渠道, 沿海海岸线, highway and railroad embankments, 以及水库的堤防.
Two common methods for bank protection employ 水泥土壤 and roller compacted concrete. Soil-水泥 has been use as a strong, durable and economical material for erosion control. Applications include upstream slope protection, streambank稳定, 以及坡度控制结构. It has also been used as a low-permeable liner for reservoirs and waste containment ponds. By using on-site or locally available soils, 水泥土壤 provides an economical and environmentally sound solution for a variety of water resource applications.
Roller compacted concrete (RCC) is a no-slump concrete that contains the same ingredients as conventional concrete: 水泥, 骨料和水. However, it is typically placed using bulldozers and compacted with vibratory steel drum rollers. 经济节约, long-term performance and speed of construction makes RCC an ideal material for protecting embankments and other water resource applications.
