Evaluation of geosynthetic anchor systems through pullout testing

February 1st, 2018

Anchor systems are a vital portion of any erosion control program tasked with negating the effects of erosive forces on disturbed soils. Anchor systems are typically deployed in situations where a rolled erosion control product (RECP) is to be used as the primary erosion control measure. As more RECPs, especially high-performance turf reinforcement mats (HPTRMs), […]

Carbon footprint implications of the erosion control response

February 1st, 2012

From the Geosynthetics Research Institute’s 24th conference, 2011.The articles in this series encompass all types of geosynthetics and their applications viewed from the context of sustainability. Traditional solutions are compared with geosynthetic solutions from both cost and carbon footprint perspectives. (from the Geosynthetic Research Institute’s 24th conference, 2011) Introduction Many geosynthetic erosion control technologies are […]
