The following will be based on the classical mechanics: study the effect of spreading coefficient on the rebound of the slurry wall and find the factors that affect the spreading coefficient.
The rheological property results of slurry of bentonite-water slurries are shown in Figure 1, and the results indicated that slurries with 8% and 10% bentonite content could satisfy the desired rheological properties for SB backfills slurry wall constructions.
* A number of cleanup projects at the site have been completed over the years, including the disposal of dioxin, asbestos and some of the most contaminated material, demolishing 15 buildings, installing a slurry wall to prevent pollution from getting into the river and emptying two contaminated lagoons and filling them with clean material.

The towers are largely portrayed as technical feats: The elevator motor was part of an "innovative" elevation system, the slurry wall an engineering triumph.
Each pile forming the barrier wall was cast in three steps over an 11-to 12-day cycle: I) slurry wall excavation down to top of bedrock, with tremie concrete backfill; 2) directional drilling of pilot hole behind initial concrete layer; and, 3) pilot hole-guided drilling of cylindrical pile into the bedrock, tremie concrete backfill for full-depth, finished wall.
Among the project's additional challenges were: resisting earth and hydrostatic pressures from up to 70 feet of pre-9/11 excavations and the need to support the existing slurry wall.
