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... »

Geosynthetic Reinforcement for Wind Energy

Subsidies and federal energy policies get most of the headlines, but with the increasing size of wind turbines and the scale of wind farms, few sites can be developed without soil reinforcement technologies. Geosynthetics provide the stable base for construction works and long-term access on wind energy sites. On-shore wind turbine hub heights increasingly crest 100m, and some are approaching 150m... »

PODCAST: Leap Frog Ideas for Low Impact Development

How do we create a more water-centric infrastructure? That’s a question LimnoTech senior engineer Dr. Daniel Medina, P.E., D.WRE addresses in his work. Low impact development strategies are very important to his work. It’s trickier than just saying “use LID,” though. Inequalities between cities and countries make is harder for some infrastructure strategies to get adopted. Priorities are different... »

Hydraulic Engineering Solutions Seminar, July 14

Waterways are dynamic environments. Strong hydraulic engineering solutions are needed to create resilient infrastructures that minimize environmental impact, control costs, and provide long-term performance. On July 14, Maccaferri will host  an exclusive breakfast seminar (7:30 am – 11:00 am) in Gaithersburg, Maryland focused on the application and design of hydraulic solutions. The seminar is fre... »
