  • Jim Olsta to Receive D18 Standards Development Award
    Jim Olsta is a veteran presence in the geosynthetics field, particularly in regards to barrier solutions that utilize clays (e.g., geosynthetic clay liners). He has also carved out a strong reputation as a consensus builder with ASTM International committees, and those years of work will be recognized this June. During the ASTM D18 Committee on Soil and Rock meetings in San Diego, California, Jim ... »
  • GeoPASS II Delivered a High-Level, Diverse Technical Seminar
    On the heels of ASCE’s GeoCarolinas conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, locally headquartered HUESKER delivered a high-level technical seminar and networking event. The gathering GeoPASS II, followed the previous year’s format: a strong list of invited speakers for a day-long seminar, a diverse range of topics, a limited attendee list representing various perspectives and specialties in the f... »
  • Geosynthetic Support Pad Offers More Than 800 t Capacity
    HUESKER has developed a geosynthetic support pad (Fortrac Heavy Load). The system has been engineered for storing extra-heavy units, such as monopoles for offshore wind turbines or ship components. The load capacity of this geosynthetic support pad is greater than 800 t. “Traditional constructions with custom-made steel and concrete support posts tend to be very expensive,” the company writes. “[T... »
  • GeoPASS II Offers a Strong Geotechnical Program – October 11
    Last year, Charlotte, North Carolina-based HUESKER hosted a high-level, invitation-only geosynthetics technical networking event called GeoPASS. The inaugural series delivered top-tier lectures and perspectives on diverse topics such as the Limit Equilibrium Design Framework, coal ash disposal, contractor’s views on geosynthetics in geotechnical engineering, and more. GeoPASS II, to be held Octobe... »
  • Defining Interaction Flexibility for Geogrid-Reinforced Structures
    By HUESKER – Key properties in effective geosynthetic reinforcement are adequate tensile stiffness and tensile strength coupled with good interaction behavior. The relatively new technical term interaction flexibility introduces a previously disregarded aspect: the flexibility of the geogrid in a reinforced structure. This property has been shown to improve the interaction between soils and the ge... »
