The MIP process

5

Advantages of the MIP method

MIP wall

- By using the triple auger, hetero-

geneous soil structures are homo-

genized. The phenomenon of

window-forming

familiar from slim

wall production is

eliminated

.

- Using the existing in-situ soil as

a building material/aggregate

conserves resources

.

- The MIP process is highly attrac-

tive particularly in

economic

and

ecological

terms, as it generates

less noise and fewer emissions.

- The technique of

low-vibration

wall construction

by rotary

drilling reduces the strain on the

often unstable dams and dykes

as well as on local residents.

-

Structural strength

of the cut-

off wall is made possible by

installing reinforcing elements.

- Product quality is assured by

extensive

preparatory and in-

process

measures

.

- The

mix design can be

changed

at any time on-site.

This enables the suspension to

be adjusted to the actual ground

conditions.

- The closed suspension circuit

means that

no contamination of

the dyke slopes

occurs.

- The

high productivity

of MIP

means short construction times.

- MIP is

cheaper

than standard

cut-off wall methods.

A comparison of transport volumes between the construction of a MIP

wall and a pile wall very clearly demonstrates the economic and eco-

logical benefits

he engineers at specialist foun-

dation engineering company

Bauer Spezialtiefbau can call

upon many years of experience.

Bauer has been carrying out Mixed-

in-Place projects for over 20 years.

Since 1994, this extensive expertise

has been pooled in a dedicated spe-

cialist department. Well trained teams

and high-tech equipment enable the

MIP process to be applied in virtually

any soil formation.
