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... »

Educate the Educators - IGS

ACIGS Bringing IGS Educate the Educators to Australia

The International Geosynthetics Society’s Educate the Educators program has had a substantial and beneficial impact on college-level geotechnical and civil engineering programs. EtE workshops provide high-caliber professional development and resources for professors and instructors to incorporate geosynthetics into their curricula. The endeavor is essential, as too many young engineers enter the f... »

Mine Haul Roads on Composite Geogrids in Northern Ontario

Mine Haul Roads on Composite Geogrids in Northern Ontario

Mines depend on consistent access for site safety, operational efficiency, and profitability. Delays in access can quickly cost active mines millions of dollars in lost production, and that can determine the fate of a site’s continued operation. In Northern Ontario, mine haul roads on composite geogrids have proven to be a highly effective strategy to keep mines running. MINE HAUL ROADS – GEOTECHN... »
