PODCAST: The Coming Wave of Biogeotechnical Engineering

Biogeotechnical engineering is adding enzymes, microbes, and much more to the engineer’s toolbox Geosynthetics have achieved some remarkable levels of performance in infrastructure. They play a big role, but they are only a small part of a project. Other materials, such as soils, aggregates, and concrete make up the rest of infrastructure. Increasingly, we find geosynthetics being used in co... »

VIDEO: Chungsik Yoo and Erol Güler Discuss Underground Construction

At EuroGeo 6, the International Geosythetics Society recorded one of its “Two for a Few” installments, which brings together field experts for brief talk on a high-level issue. This time around, IGS Vice President Prof. Chungsik Yoo and IGS Council Member Dr. Fazli Erol Güler sat down to discuss geosynthetics in underground construction. Dr. Güler opens the 9:00-minute conversation by asking Prof.... »

Drainage and Venting of Geosynthetic Containment Systems

PODCAST: Proper Drainage and Venting of Geosynthetic Barrier Systems

The field of geosynthetics has seen a strong increase geomembrane performance debate. The topics have looked roundly at performance in exposed environments, in buried service conditions (e.g., landfill lining), from installation perspectives, and much more. The Berlin 2 think-tank gathering in 2014 on HDPE geomembranes, Queen’s University’s barrier studies, and the Geosynthetic Institute’s ever-gr... »
