Within the context of the preliminary studies, the city of Avignon entrusted FONDASOL a total length of 7,800 m of dykes on the right bank of the Rhône, between Daladier Bridge and the north of La Barthelasse.
Missions entrusted to FONDASOL:
G5 geotechnical diagnostic mission on a total length of 7,800 m of dykes on the right bank of the Rhône, between Daladier Bridge and the north of La Barthelasse. The aim of this study is to define geotechnical models that are homogeneous over the length of the project, in order to estimate the stability against slippage of the structures in place under different hydraulic conditions. The calculations where mainly performed using the TALREN4 program.
In the context of this mission, FONDASOL carried out a number of geotechnical investigations:
