In the drive for sustainable drainage, geocellular drainage tanks make a useful contribution to the engineering options available.
CIRIA publication Structural design of modular geocellular drainage tanks
(C680) was developed to provide objective information on their design, testing and installation. Since publication in 2008 experience in the use of geocellular drainage tanks has grown and internationally much has been produced to support design and testing of their various structural forms. This project will produce revised guidance reflecting a natural evolution in the understanding of the design, proof testing, and performance of geocellular drainage tanks taking into account international progress in the development of design and testing standards.
This project is currently in progress. If you would like more information or to get involved please contact Kieran Tully
