Moving Down the Road of Progress: Geosynthetics Subdue Failures on Expansive Clays and Frost-susceptible Soils
Using geosynthetics in roadway projects has provided sustainable alternatives for reconstruction and maintenance and now represents a significant portion of the total geosynthetics market. Geosynthetics...

Revolutionizing Containment Applications: Geosynthetics are Amazingly Good, But Not Magical
Geotextiles and geomembranes have been around for more than 40 years and geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) for more than 25 years. During that time, they have revolutionized the containment of fluids. Their...

Years of Planning for the South San Francisco Bay Shoreline Project: Now It�s Time to Build! Rapidly but Gently!
When a complicated project is completed, and you ask the engineers, "What was the most challenging part of this project?" a couple of difficulties usually come to mind. We�ve all heard war stories from...

A Simple Model to Predict Soil Resistance to Driving for Long Piles in Deepwater Normally Consolidated Clays
As the exploration and development for offshore oil and gas reserves moves into the deepwater environment of the continental slope, a good model is necessary to evaluate drivability of...

Mechanisms Controlling the Permeability of Clays
Coefficients of permeability, calculated using Terzaghi's theory of one-dimensional consolidation, are reported for smectite, illite, and kaolinite, in water, methyl and ethyl...

Measurement of Hydraulic Conductivity of Partially Saturated Soils
Increased interest in protection of the environment has led to a need to be able to predict long-term movement of moisture, and contaminants, in the vicinity of shallow land disposal sites...

Performance of Suction Caissons in Sand and Clay
The use of suction caissons (suction piles) in marine environments has been increasing in the last decade. A suction caisson is a steel pipe with an open bottom and a closed top that is...
