THE CORRECTION OF CLAY SLOPES BY MEANS OF UNDERGROUND DRAINING SCREENS

CORRECION DE LADERAS ARCILLOSAS MEDIANTE LA EJECUCION DE PANTALLAS DRENANTES SUBTERRANEAS

The paper deals with the problems of slump in clay slopes which frequently affect civil work in the south of Spain. A special technique is developed, which resolves the problem by influencing the reasons and modifying them accordingly. This special technique merely consists in the coordinated use of other specific and well known techniques and its success lies in its simplicity and common sense. In all cases the result obtained has been a complete success, remaining as the only question the life of these draining curtains, of which the oldest one has been working for four years without problem.
