Geomembranes and Geosyntheticss

Assignments usually include static and seismic slope stability evaluations geosynthetic lined slopes, such as landfills, water reservoirs, canals, and other water features. More recent projects include evaluating the performance of geomembranes in the presence of elevated temperatures, puncture resistance and protection of geomembranes, field welding and testing of geomembrane seams, long-term durability of geomembranes, and benefits of factory, instead of field, fabrication of geomembranes.
