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... »

Relining a Tailings Dam Stormwater Channel with Limited Access

By Concrete Canvas – In August 2016, a Concrete Canvas® Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat (GCCM) was used to line a drainage channel at Glenridding Mine, Ullswater, Cumbria. The objective was to re-line an existing 200m long channel on top of a tailings dam to prevent damage from runoff during severe rain storms. In recent years there have been a number of extreme rain storms in the La... »
