FHWA Limit Equilibrium Design Framework for MSE Structures

The innovative performance of geosynthetic reinforcement materials has led to mechanically stabilized earth walls and slopes becoming a mainstay of modern infrastructure—particularly with highways and commercial development. However, agreement is not so easy to find on the design framework best suited to consistent long-term performance and safe engineering and construction. Failures are rare, but... »

TenCate Geosynthetics Launches New High-Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats

Turf reinforcement mats are engineered to solve more difficult, longer-term erosion control situations on slopes and in channels. These materials retain bare soil and stabilize and nurture vegetation while resist the challenges of precipitation and high-flow rates on soils. TenCate Geosynthetics has introduced two more high-performance turf reinforcement mats. The Mirafi® TM13C and TM14S TRMs are ... »
