How does Geotextile, Geogrid, Geosynthetics Work – Hands on Experience

In late 60’s, the introduction of engineered synthetics, geosynthetics, into soil was a major breakthrough in improving soil behavior. While the classic soil mechanics from Coulomb, Rankine and Terzaghi have never changed, adaptations to these fundamental principles have been developed taken into consideration of geosynthetics. We are sponsoring a full day CPD curriculum on 6 June focusing on some of the development.

Apart from technical presentation, we have set up a small workshop where you will be able to have a hand on experience with various types of geosynthetics, sampling and appreciating their characteristics and performance.

Eight speakers will present an overview & history, conductive HDPE waterproofing membrane, geosynthetic cementitious composite mat, prefabricated band drain, slope protection steel cable mesh, international conformance testing, drainage geocomposite and reinforced soil.
