PODCAST: The Coming Wave of Biogeotechnical Engineering

Biogeotechnical engineering is adding enzymes, microbes, and much more to the engineer’s toolbox Geosynthetics have achieved some remarkable levels of performance in infrastructure. They play a big role, but they are only a small part of a project. Other materials, such as soils, aggregates, and concrete make up the rest of infrastructure. Increasingly, we find geosynthetics being used in co... »

PODCAST: The Push towards Reinvention in Geomembranes

Many infrastructure applications rely upon geosynthetic barriers. Over time, we’ve seen the specification of 40 or 60-mil black high-density polyethylene geomembranes become so common that black HDPE can feel almost like a commodity product. In part, this seems at odds with the critical containment these geomembranes provide. But, it is also in part a testimony to how the geosynthetics manufacturi... »

Enhanced Wicking Geotextile Emerges from an Engineering Challenge

The Alaska Department of Transportation brought a specific engineering challenge to TenCate Geosynthetics: the need to enhance lateral drainage from roadway subgrades to minimize frost boils. The company came back not only with a design solution but a very unique geotextile, one which is now finding many different applications. Mark Sikkema of TenCate Geosynthetics discusses the development and us... »
