While the SCB wall provides additional strength, permeability is one property that generally suffers in comparison to soil-bentonite slurry walls. A normal permeability specification would be a maximum of 1 x 10 –6 cm/sec. With special attention to materials and procedures, a specification of a maximum 5 x 10 –7 can be achieved. Data are ...

used soil-cement-bentonite. The deepest clamshell wall (Wells Dam, WA) reached 74 m, and the deepest hydromill wall (Mud Mountain, WA) reached 120 m. The maximum depth reached by secant piles is 85 m (Wolf Creek, KY). These projects have had minimum wall widths of 0.5 to 1 m, with most being in the range 0.7 - 0.9 m.


A cement-bentonite wall is a cast-in-situ water retaining screen, made up of a purpose-designed low-permeability material such as a cement-bentonite mixture. Driving sections such as sheet piles can be installed within the cut-off wall to reinforce the latter and assure structural stability.


into the cut-off wall. Slurry walls are normally excavated using either large tracked hydraulic backacter machines for depths up to 15m, or crane based rope operated grabs for depths in excess of 15m, dependent upon ground conditions. Application Slurry trench cut-off walls are used to control and contain leachates, gases and ground water.


Cement-bentonite (CB) cutoff walls have long been used to control ground water flow and contaminant migration at polluted sites. Hydraulic conductivity and unconfined compressive strength are two short-term properties often used by industry and owners in CB specification and are important parameters discussed in this paper. For polluted sites, long-term compatibility is …


An alternative to a soil-bentonite cutoff wall is a cement-bentonite cutoff wall. The trench is excavated in a manner similar to soil-bentonite walls as described above, using a slurry to maintain trench stability. However, cement is added to the slurry. The cement-bentonite-water slurry is left in the trench and allowed to harden.

A laboratory investigation was carried out to determine the physical properties of a suitable mix of cement-bentonite for a low-permeability cutoff wall implemented in 1991 under the north dyke at the LG-1 hydroelectric site, which is part of the James Bay Development Project in Northern Quebec.


The critical design criteria and the resulting specifications for slurry trench diaphragm walls and cutoff walls are discussed. To establish diaphragm and cutoff slurry wall design criteria and specifications, the designer must clearly establish the objectives or end results that are to be obtained, and shape his specifications accordingly.
