Protecting a Caribbean Shoreline and Coal-Fired Power Plant

TenCate Geosynthetics has published a new video that features how TenCate Geotube® technology was used to repair and protect a Caribbean shoreline. The immediate area included a large utility company, which had seen the shoreline erode significantly over a period of years. Storm surges with waves exceeding 3m had been a major factor in the waterfront deterioration, which had taken 50m of beach. Th... »

PODCAST: Bob Mackey on the State of Geosynthetics Education

A few years ago, the International Geosynthetics Society revived its Educate the Educators program. The initiative was developed in the early 1990s to help educate engineers, regulators, and academics about geosynthetic materials, which were flourishing in field use. More than 20 years later, the field of geosynthetics had grown enormously—but how to engineer with these materials had not become st... »

PODCAST: Pullout Anchor Testing in Erosion and Sediment Control

Jay Sprague of the South Carolina-based Denver Down Research Facility took on a private client’s pullout anchor testing questions with erosion and sediment control systems and components. The results began to yield revealing data on anchor pullout performance, and in a way that has not been previously explored. Listen to “Pullout Anchor Testing in Erosion and Sediment Control” on Sprea... »

Effective Education for Erosion and Sediment Control System Adoption

Erosion and sediment control advances have produced enormously beneficial results, in infrastructure performance and economics; yet, rates of erosion and sediment control system adoption rates have lagged behind the research supporting them. Dr. Eve Brantley, an extension specialist and associate professor with Auburn University’s Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences Department in the renowned C... »
