GMA Webinar: Stability of Geosynthetic Lined Slopes, Part 1

February 27 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In Collaboration with the Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI)

FREE to Industry Professionals

February 27, 2018 | Noon EST

In this two-part webinar series, we will discuss common slope stability problems

with geosynthetic lined slopes and how to specify and measure geosynthetic

interface strengths to prevent these problems from developing.

 

Part 1 will use case histories to illustrate common field conditions that can result in

slope instability and the conditions that should be evaluated during design.  This

webinar will also discuss the geosynthetic interface shear strengths that should be

used for various static and seismic design scenarios.

Presenter:
