New Short Course: Slope Stability of Containment Systems

Containment facilities require multiple geosynthetics, which creates a need to design with a strong understanding of the interface between soils and geosynthetics and between different geosynthetics. The new short course, Slope Stability of Containment Systems, will address this topic May 23 – 24 in Austin, Texas. The presenters for the course represent the geosynthetics testing and environmental ... »

Secondary Geogrid Reinforcement in MSE Walls

By Paul C. Frankenberger, P.E.; Matthew M. Merritt, P.E.; and Mark Myers, P.E. – The concept of secondary geogrid layers located at the face of a mechanically stabilized earth wall is similar to the use of secondary geogrid reinforcement in MSE reinforced slopes. In slopes, the secondary geogrid layers are used to stabilize the slope face between the primary geogrid layers. The result is closely s... »
