Geocomposite Waste Cell Capping System for Steep Slopes
Several geosynthetics manufacturers have developed new products with high surface friction characteristics for capping steep slopes. One such product has been developed that will satisfy...

Long-Term Durability and Aging of Geomembranes

Asphalt Pavement Crack Control at Fairbanks International Airport

Geosynthetic Shields For Dams
A series of large dams in Europe, waterproofed by geosynthetics, may become U.S. prototypes. In Europe, the faces of more than 30 large dams now contain geotextiles and geomembranes. In...

Highway Erosion Remedial Measures
Soil erosion from highway ditches, cut slopes and fill slopes present a continuous problem to roadway designers, geotechnical engineers, and construction and maintenance personnel from...

Geosynthetics for Soil Improvement: A General Report and Keynote Address
The paper summarizes major developments in the field of geosynthetics since the previous symposium in 1980. The paper addresses the engineering functions of major types of geosynthetics,...

Clogging Study of Geotextile with Weathered Mudstone
This paper focuses on the combined use of fly ash and geotextiles as a solution for the typical engineering problem of weathered mudstone slopes encountered in Taiwan. In situ collapsed...

Geosynthetics in the NATM Tunnel Design
This paper describes the Design Methodology for the New Austrian Tunneling Method (NATM) with special emphasis on the geotextile and geomembrane commonly used in the waterproofing design...

Survivability and Durability of a Nonwoven Geotextile
This paper presents the results of a field investigation and laboratory testing program to evaluate the properties of two different polypropylene, thermally-bonded nonwoven geotextiles...

Pull-Out Response of Geotextiles and Geogrids (Synthesis of Available Experimental Data)
During the past 15 years, there has been a considerable growth in the use of various materials to reinforce soils. The rapid development of geosynthetics and their increasing use in soil...

Design of Ash Basin Dike across Cove
Embankments built over soft, unstable foundation materials had required that the materials either be removed or reinforced. With the introduction of geotextiles, it is now economically...

Finite Element Analyses of the St. Alban Test Embankments
Finite element analyses were performed of three embankments on sensitive clay that were constructed to failure at St. Alban, Quebec. One of the embankments was reinforced with flat-lying...

Section Two — Embankment Stabilization Techniques

Geosynthetics for Soil Improvement
Geosynthetics have had a tremendous impact on various aspects of soil improvement. In a number of situations which previously had not been technically or economically feasible, geosynthetics...

Modeling of Geotextile Reinforced Mat Placed on Soft Dredgings

Geosynthetics in Civil Engineering Construction

Geosynthetics: Cleanup Tools
In addition to their use in liners and drainage systems for new landfills, geosynthetics can be used in environmental remediation projects. In an early example, contaminated muck was removed...

Ogallala Recharge with Stormwater Collected in Playa Lakes
Runoff occurring from this precipitation collects in playa lakes. The bottoms of these lakes are comprised of clays and silts which prevent or retard infiltration in subsequent recharge....

Hydraulic Fill Embankments Utilizing Geosynthetics

Shallow Foundation on Sand Underlain by Soft Clay with Geotextile Interface
One technique for improving the load-bearing capacity of shallow foundations on soft clay soil is to construct them over a compact granular fill laid over the clay layer. However, the...
