PODCAST: The Push towards Reinvention in Geomembranes

Many infrastructure applications rely upon geosynthetic barriers. Over time, we’ve seen the specification of 40 or 60-mil black high-density polyethylene geomembranes become so common that black HDPE can feel almost like a commodity product. In part, this seems at odds with the critical containment these geomembranes provide. But, it is also in part a testimony to how the geosynthetics manufacturi... »

Western ProLine Sets a Course for Geosynthetic Fabrication Success

When Brawler Industries closed its four locations in the United States, its assets were bought up by various geosynthetics entities. The one location we hadn’t heard about was what happened to the Miles City, Montana assets and inventory. They have certainly not sat idle. Instead, William Phair acquired the site and established a new geosynthetics fabrication company, Western ProLine, LLC, in Marc... »

Strata’s New Geotechnical Software Focuses on GRS Design

The recently launched StrataPro™ geotechnical software platform from Strata Systems, Inc. is a welcomed addition to the tools engineers can use to improve GRS design. Geosynthetically reinforced soil structures can improve the sustainability, economics, and safety of infrastructure, but they require significant care in planning and material selection. Programs such as StrataPro provide that suppor... »

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... »

WEBINAR: 10 Design Missteps That Affect Geomembrane Performance

On August 31 at 1:00 pm EDT, Solmax will host a free webinar on a much welcomed topic: “Designing for success: a look at 10 design missteps that may affect the performance of geomembrane liners in service.” In announcing the webinar, Solmax notes: Performance may be thought of as a comparison between expected behavior and actual behavior. A high-performing containment facility is one in which comp... »
