DOWNLOAD NEWEST WEBINAR: Effect of Elevated Temperatures on Geosynthetics - Presented by Dr. Timothy Stark, University of Illinois

Dedicated to advancing the use of fabricated geomembranes through education, research, and technology transfer.

WHY?
Factory fabrication reduces field welding, reduces installation time and costs, allows modular construction and provides consistent seam and liner quality.

The ability to analyze and compute factors of safety for slopes has increased greatly in the last decade. This ability has increased to the point that factors of safety can be computed using even complex limit equilibrium methods, such as Morgenstern and Price (1960), which used to be too computationally intensive for microcomputers; the finite-difference method, such as FLAC/Slope; and the finite-element method, such as PLAXIS.
