Period

Rapid improvement of levee structures

  • Development of a new environmentally-friendly construction material and its application methods to rapidly improve and strength and control the hydraulic conductivity of earthen (soil) levee structures.

  • Development of the new construction material is going to be proceeded by using microbial biopolymers or other bio-induced materials.

  • Erosion tests using modified jet-hole and hydraulic flume equipment.
