INTERVIEW: Dr. Julio Ferreira on Geosynthetics in the Americas

Geosynthetica Latin America’s editor Natalia Rodado caught up with Dr. Julio Ferreira (TRI Ambiental, Brazil) during GeosPeru 2017. In the interview that followed, they discussed the growth of geosynthetics in Latin America, some of the things that connect and differentiate the practice in North and South America, and the field’s future. Natalia’s article follows, with translation and additional d... »

Looking back on Geosynthetics in Land and Water, as the Magazine Ends

By Chris Kelsey – In mid-2006 I was providing freelance editorial services for Geosynthetica. At the time, the publication was owned by the geosynthetics engineering consultancy I-CORP International. The consultancy’s founder and president, Ian Peggs, encouraged me to write an article for Land and Water. He was working on a story for Land and Water too. In discussion with Geosynthetica’s Dir... »

Solmax Invites CIM 2017 Attendees to Tour Manufacturing Plant

The manufacturing process for geosynthetics is complex but learning more about these processes is extremely instructive for how to properly utilize and understand geosynthetic materials. During CIM 2017, one of the biggest mining conferences in Canada, Solmax will open its doors to tours of its state-of-the-art geosynthetics manufacturing plant in Montreal. CIM 2017 is the annual conference of the... »

New Short Course: Slope Stability of Containment Systems

Containment facilities require multiple geosynthetics, which creates a need to design with a strong understanding of the interface between soils and geosynthetics and between different geosynthetics. The new short course, Slope Stability of Containment Systems, will address this topic May 23 – 24 in Austin, Texas. The presenters for the course represent the geosynthetics testing and environmental ... »
