Following a brief account of early developments in the field of slurry trench excavations, the author describes the methods of forming cut-off walls and discusses slurry materials and properties generally. Chapters include descriptions of slurry testing methods and equipment, excavation equipment currently available and guidance on the mixing and re-use of slurry. A chapter on structural diaphragm walls includes case histories and descriptions of precasting units, and also post-tensioning and load-bearing systems. /TRRL/
