Abstract : The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has used increasingly in recent years geotextile tubes filled with sand for the retention and erosion protection of dredged material in low wave energy, low tidal range regimes. Because little design and construction guidance for such application is available, a workshop was conducted to document the state-of-knowledge of geotextile tube design and deployment. The workshop focused on existing capabilities to design geotextile tube structures and lessons learned from field deployments. The presentations and discussions are summarized, conclusions are discussed, and suggestions for future research are provided.
