New Manufacturing Facility Shows India’s Rise in Geosynthetics

India’s fast-developing economy and large population places extra pressure on the nation to execute large-scale infrastructure development. The resulting investment in roadways, railways, power-grid expansion, and water resources creates a strong market for geosynthetics domestically.  Bolstered by these projects, India has also become a center for geosynthetics production, both for local use and ... »

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... »
