An extensive 2D Physical model test has been performed at INHA in Spain for the remediation design study of the Port Basin revetment in South-east Asia.
During a model testing campaign of 5 weeks the actual cause of the displacements and possible remediation solutions for different areas have been investigated and optimized. A highly flexible approach was adopted as the optimum remediation design should be derived based on progressive insight and knowledge of the functioning of remediation design options. The model testing provided highly interesting information on the local circumstances, impact of construction aspects and verified a stable and very cost-efficient design.
The actual situation and construction as in reality was tested first, providing similar results as could be seen during the site visit. This proved sufficient reliability of the model testing and different remediation designs were tested and further optimized. This resulted in different remediation designs in the Port Basin area.
