In the first afternoon-session Professor Aulbach reported on the experience gained in obtaining approval in individual cases for composite earth structures. The effort as well as the possible additionally required measurement and corrosion protection concepts for obtaining a ZiE were presented on the basis of specific projects of the ZAI.
