USACE engineers demonstrate the effectiveness of foam backfill technology
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center
November 17, 2016 | 4:11
The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s (ERDC) Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory completed a field demonstration of foam backfill technology for rapid crater repair November 17 at the annual Silver Flag exercise site on Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida. ERDC evaluated ten Airmen from the U.S. Air Force Prime Base Engineer Emergency Force using the new foam dispensing equipment and improved repair procedures. Results from this demonstration and the feedback collected from the participants will help further improvement of the technology.

Exercise Silver Flag site engages more than 4,500 people annually to learn how to build and maintain bare-base operations at a forward-deployed location.
