VIDEO: Geomembrane Secures USACE Levee Breach Test Facility

The United States Army Corps of Engineers controls more than 14,000 miles of levees. An additional 85,000+ miles of levees are privately owned and operated. To help improve strategies for preventing or responding to levee breach scenarios, USACE has constructed a Full-Scale Levee Breach and Hydraulic Test Facility in Vicksburg, Mississippi. A reinforced composite geomembrane lining system from Owe... »

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... »

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... »

Video: ILT Coal Ash Containment Installation at Reid Gardner

International Lining Technology began work on a coal ash containment project at the Reid Gardner Generating Station in late November 2016. The 557-MW plant sits on 480 acres near Moapa, Nevada and has been undergoing closure activities in recent years. Three of the sites four units (totally 300 MW of capacity) have service records extending back in the 1960s and 1970s. The site operators began dec... »
