GMA Webinar: Stability of Geosynthetic Lined Slopes, Part 1
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.
