I-CORP on 2018’s Most Interesting and On-Going Projects

Dr. Ian Peggs, PE, PEng, started an international print newsletter in the 1990s. That publication, Industry Insight, evolved out of its print format and into the digital publication Geosynthetica. While Dr. Peggs sold Geosynthetica in 2010, we have the great privilege of retaining a strong relationship with him. Geosynthetica’s team is excited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication i... »

Titan Times 2018 – Clean Energy, Large Projects, Company Expansion

In its Titan Times 2018 Year in Review magazine, Titan Environmental delivers a strong account of geosynthetic growth for its company and the geotechnical field in general. The increasing scale of projects, the furthering of material technology (e.g., concrete reinforcement geogrids), and the opening of new facilities tell a story of a very active company and of how the civil engineering community... »

Railway Ballast Stabilization with Geocell at Bridge Approaches

A portion of a railway track in Fort Lauderdale, Florida had been a high maintenance area for many years due to the impact loads from rail cars transitioning off of a concrete bridge abutment onto ballasted concrete ties. The ties were located over soft subgrade, which had exhibited a history of pumping. The rail operator, Florida East Coast Railway, sought a ballast stabilization solution to corr... »

Wicking Geotextiles Getting Noticed by US DOTs

Roughly eight years ago, TenCate Geosynthetics was involved in a now well-studied project along Alaska’s Dalton Highway. The road served as the only ground transportation route between the oil fields at Prudhoe Bay and the city of Fairbanks, but the extreme northern environment caused significant degradation along the 500-mile highway due to frost heave. Wicking geotextiles were proposed to streng... »
