Webinar: Geosynthetic Application Guidelines for Ground Infrastructures
|Date/Time||Jul 11, 2022 @ 5:00pm - 6:00pm|
|Presenter||Dr Sanjay Kumar Shukla|
Presented by Dr Sanjay Kumar Shukla Free Registration HERE Geosynthetics is a generic name representing a broad range of products, which are manufactured under controlled conditions, mainly from the synthetic polymeric materials, for use with soil, rock and/or any other civil-engineering-related material as an integral part of a human-made project, structure or system. In the present-day civil, mining and other related engineering practices, geosynthetics are used as one of the major construction materials. Their use offers technically efficient, cost-effective, sustainable, environment-friendly and/or energy-efficient alternative solutions to many field problems. The successful application of geosynthetics in ground infrastructures depends on many general application aspects in addition to methods of analysis, design and construction of geosynthetic-reinforced ground infrastructures. This talk will focus on several general aspects of applications of geosynthetics, namely geosynthetic selection and test methods, protection before application, site preparation, geosynthetic installation, joints, cutting of geosynthetics on site, protection during construction and service life, damage correction, anchorage, prestressing and maintenance. The talk aims at helping the geosynthetic users and professionals for developing the confidence in sustainable applications of geosynthetics in civil, mining, agriculture and aquacultural engineering as the world is looking for the net-zero environment.
