ACES-Jordan and ACES-Dubai joined forces recently to complete the site investigation works for the existing Dikes 19 & 20 at Salt Pan 0B in Dead Sea, Jordan. This investigation was carried out to assess the existing dikes 19 & 20 and the alternate alignments in order to put the dike 19 back in operations after a sudden and catastrophic failure that occurred on March 2000. The scope of work included drilling of 10 standard penetration test holes, 48 seismic cone penetration holes, 10 field vane shear holes and 8 flat plate dilatometer holes down to approximate depth ranging from 35.0m to 45.0m in addition to performing the necessary and applicable laboratory testing and geotechnical reporting.
