EVOH Layers and Better Gas Barrier Performance for Geomembranes

Geosynthetic barriers perform exceptionally well in liquid containment applications, but gas barrier performance can still be improved. Volatile organic compounds, for example, can diffuse through barrier systems. The rate is low, but the incorporation of an EVOH layer in a geomembrane has shown that the diffusion rate of VOCs can actually be much lower. Applications that utilize geosynthetics and... »

Strata’s New Geotechnical Software Focuses on GRS Design

The recently launched StrataPro™ geotechnical software platform from Strata Systems, Inc. is a welcomed addition to the tools engineers can use to improve GRS design. Geosynthetically reinforced soil structures can improve the sustainability, economics, and safety of infrastructure, but they require significant care in planning and material selection. Programs such as StrataPro provide that suppor... »

PODCAST: Bob Mackey on the State of Geosynthetics Education

A few years ago, the International Geosynthetics Society revived its Educate the Educators program. The initiative was developed in the early 1990s to help educate engineers, regulators, and academics about geosynthetic materials, which were flourishing in field use. More than 20 years later, the field of geosynthetics had grown enormously—but how to engineer with these materials had not become st... »

WEBINAR: 10 Design Missteps That Affect Geomembrane Performance

On August 31 at 1:00 pm EDT, Solmax will host a free webinar on a much welcomed topic: “Designing for success: a look at 10 design missteps that may affect the performance of geomembrane liners in service.” In announcing the webinar, Solmax notes: Performance may be thought of as a comparison between expected behavior and actual behavior. A high-performing containment facility is one in which comp... »
