Presto Geosystems Releases a Porous Pavement Design Assistant

Porous pavement solutions have drawn considerable interest in communities for the green engineering benefits they provide. Porous pavements can greatly reduce stormwater runoff by enabling a high infiltration or percolation rate of water into underlying soils. The permeability of these systems can also trap suspended solids, thus filtering them out of any residual runoff so water that is shed is c... »

Lining a South African Mine’s Gravity Thickener Tank Floor

The gravity thickener infrastructure at Exxaro’s Grootegeluk mine in Lephalale, South Africa plays a pivotal role in the recycling of water used for settlement of fines generated through fragmentation (blasting from mining) and degradation (handling processes in pit and plant; loading of trucks, bunkers, silos, chutes, transfer points). When the site operator’s maintenance program deemed it necess... »

Asphalt Reinforcement with Geogrid on Europe’s M1 Highway

The M1 Highway is a major European route, connecting Moscow and Warsaw. Along the way, the trunk road passes through Smolensk and crosses into Belarus to connect the major cities of Minsk and Brest to the roadway system. When a section along the Brest – Moscow portion suffered fatigue cracking, a geosynthetic asphalt reinforcement solution was specified. M1 ASPHALT REINFORCEMENT The problematic cr... »
