Erosion control using concrete-enhanced synthetic turf

February 1st, 2020

By Bradford H. Cooley and Bryan Scholl Concrete-enhanced synthetic turf (CEST) is a hardened revetment system best described as a fiber-reinforced, flexible concrete liner. It consists of a high-friction, impermeable geomembrane layer overlain by an engineered synthetic turf, which is infilled with a 5,000 psi (3.45 × 107 Pa) high-strength cementitious mix. The turf fibers […]
