Report Title : Hong Kong Seawall Design Study (1993), 94 p. (Reprinted, 1995)

Author : P.M. Aas & E. Engen


In view of limited capacity for disposal of dredged spoil in Hong Kong waters, and in particular the difficulty and cost of safe disposal of contaminated spoil, the Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) has been examining construction techniques that requires less dredging. In 1992, the GEO commissioned a study to identify, evaluate and recommend design concepts for seawall construction without dredging soft mud, and to compare costs and practical aspects of such designs against the traditional dredged designs in common use in Hong Kong. This report documents the study.
