This webinar will discuss the different types of geosynthetics, fundamental working principles, selection guides, design, and construction considerations.

Geosynthetics have been used in geotechnical and geoenvironmental applications for several decades and are becoming ever more common in modern engineered infrastructures. With the increased use of geosynthetics, there has also been a rise in the number of reported issues of subpar performance. In almost all cases, the performance issues related to the geosynthetics have been predominantly attributed to failure in the selection of appropriate material, inadequate design considerations, lack of understanding of the limitation of geosynthetics, and/or poor construction QA/QC. This webinar is aimed to fill some of those gaps and provide insights from the Layfield Group Technical Professionals that are continuously involved in Research and development, design support, manufacture, supply, construction, and service with geosynthetics.
