Horizontal Drain an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Prefabricated vertical drains were installed with a spacing of 1.15 m up to a depth of approximately 7.5 m in the silty clay deposit, and horizontal drains were placed in the approximately 60-cm-thick sand layer (Fig. 17.2). These drains were axially flexible and radially rigid PVC circular tubes that were perforated with geotextile around them.
