Coal Seam Gas Site Uses Graphene-Enhanced Geotextiles

A coal seam gas facility in Australia has become the site of the world’s second commercial-scale use of graphene-enhanced geotextiles. The product utilizes Imagine Intelligent Materials’ imgne® X3 coating, which is applied to Geofabrics Australasia’s bidim C geotextile. The Queensland CSG operation installed 10,000 m2 of the graphene-enhanced geotextile, which enables the the detection of holes in... »

VIDEO: Reduction Factor for Creep Rupture Behavior of Geosynthetics

In HUESKER’s May 2017 videocast, engineer Christoph Hessing discusses a highly important reduction factor that engineers must know to properly design with geosynthetics: creep rupture. This is essential to understanding soil reinforcement. “The purpose of the reduction factors is to take into account the factors influencing product behavior that are likely to be significant in an application,” Hes... »
