TenCate provides design and technical assistance to owners, engineers, contractors, and customers to insure that each and every Geotube® project is successful for the customer.
TenCate offers support for all TenCate Geotube® projects with four proprietary software programs: TenCate Geotube® Simulator, TenCate Geotube® Estimator, TenCate Geotube® Illustrator, and TenCate Geotube® Stacking Analyzer. These programs provide preliminary output data to insure proper groundwork for dewatering (and shoreline protection) projects. All of the TenCate Geotube® software programs have both Metric and English input and output capabilities. Sample outputs are shown at the right.
- TenCate Geotube® Simulator software provides the dimensions, stresses, and fill volumes for specific circumferences and heights of TenCate Geotube® units. This program creates a scale dimensional cross section image for any given TenCate Geotube® circumference and height.
- TenCate Geotube® Estimator software calculates the length of the Geotube® units required for any dewatering project where the volume or known flow are provided. Dewatered volumes, number of pumping days, and dry tons are also part of the output data.
- TenCate Geotube® Illustrator software looks at the defined footprint of a project and combines it with the volume of material to be dewatered. Then it calculates the number of Geotube® units needed, number of stacked layers, and amount of filtration fabric required to complete the project.
- TenCate Geotube® Stacking Analyzer software identifies the maximum stresses on the Geotube® units at the critical locations for a variety of the stacking alternatives.
