INGENUITY IN GEOTECHNICAL DESIGN USING GEOSYNTHETICS (2012)
Even though geosynthetics are now a well-established discipline within geotechnical engineering, ingenuity continues to be significant in projects involving their use. This is probably because of the ability to tailor the mechanical and hydraulic properties of geosynthetics in a controlled manner to address design needs in all areas of geotechnical engineering. This paper focuses on specific advances involving the use of geosynthetics in a wide range of geotechnical projects. Specifically, this paper addresses the creative use of geosynthetics in the design of earth dams, resistive barriers, unsaturated barriers, veneer slopes, coastal protection systems, foundations,
bridge abutments, retaining walls, embankments, and pavements.
