Two new offerings from Germany-based Naue GmbH & Co. KG:
- SecuCalc 2.2 software, which provides “a generic calculation” for unpaved base reinforcement with its geogrids.
- A new document, “Mining and Geosynthetics,” that profiles mining applications and how geosynthetic materials “can help mining engineers and owners achieve their goals.”
According to the Naue press release, SecuCalc gives a generic calculation of aggregate base material in unreinforced and geogrid-reinforced applications, such as under roadways, access and haul roads, and parking lots.
Regarding mining, the press release noted that “geosynthetics enhance the economic and environmental performance of mining operations, so much so that the mining industry has become one of the biggest users of geosynthetic materials.”
The new Naue publication profiles important mining applications for geosynthetics, including: heap leaching, tailings management, evaporation ponds, mine closure, and access roads.
Additional information on product types and quality control is also included, such as how geosynthetic manufacturing and testing, combined with proper specification, leads to long-term field performance.
