VIDEO: Chungsik Yoo and Erol Güler Discuss Underground Construction

At EuroGeo 6, the International Geosythetics Society recorded one of its “Two for a Few” installments, which brings together field experts for brief talk on a high-level issue. This time around, IGS Vice President Prof. Chungsik Yoo and IGS Council Member Dr. Fazli Erol Güler sat down to discuss geosynthetics in underground construction. Dr. Güler opens the 9:00-minute conversation by asking Prof.... »

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... »

Video: Pambula Merimbula Uses Polymeric Mats for Access Road

Diamond Grid has published a video story on the installation of its polymeric mat system to create an access road for Pambula Merimbula Golf Course in Australia. At the open of the story, Pat Wilson, course superintendent, says that the course has used the polymeric matting solution on several projects historically on the course in lieu of concrete. Diamond Grid notes that its primary material cos... »

SWANApalooza Includes Geosynthetics Panel on Failure and Value

At the open of promotional video for the March 28 geosynthetics panel discussion on failure and project value, the narrator quotes renowned investor Warren Buffet: Price is what you pay; value is what you get. This is an especially apt comment for geosynthetics, where the decline of a simple quality assurance service can lead to millions of dollars of litigation, clean up, and repair due to failur... »
