ABSTRACT: The design of geotextile containers for dewatering applications typically requires
hydraulic compatibility between the geotextile and the confined fill material. Ideally, a geotextile
container must successfully retain the solid phase of the fill material and must not be clogged during
the dewatering process. This becomes difficult to achieve when the fill material is fine grained and the
pore openings are large, such as with traditional geotextile containers. Fly ash and bottom-sea
dredged sediments are some of the fine-grained geomaterials that exhibit behaviour that is different
