FGI to present GCL shear testing webinar

Events | February 26, 2019 | By:

The Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI) will sponsor a webinar “GCL Shear Testing,” on February 28, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. CST. The webinar is free to student and industry professionals.

In this presentation, Chris Bareither, P.E., Ph.D., will discuss the internal and interface shear strength of geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs). General topics covered will include characteristics of GCLs, fundamentals of shear strength, shear testing of GCLs, internal and interface shear strength, and current research and future challenges.

Dr. Bareither is an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) where he conducts research and teaches in the field of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering. His research focuses on mechanical properties of geomaterials; the physical, hydraulic, chemical and biological behavior of solid waste; and mining geotechnics and mine waste management. He currently serves as faculty advisor to the CSU chapter of Engineers Without Borders and is a licensed Professional Engineer in Colorado. Dr. Bareither received a B.S. in geological engineering from the University of Idaho (2004) and an M.S. and Ph.D. in geological engineering from University of Wisconsin–Madison (2006 and 2010).

Participants earn 1 professional development hour.
