Scour protection with geotextile sand containers (GSC)

Scour protection with geotextile sand containers (GSC) The foundation structures of offshore wind energy plants (OWEA) are often flushed out or undermined (formation of scours). These scours are caused by the highly complex interaction between sea state, sea floor and the structure itself as well as the resulting changes in the [...]

Geosynthetics in Railway Constructions

Geosynthetics in Railway Constructions Application spectrum – Advantages – Environment protection Geosynthetics have been used in railroad construction since the 1970s in earthworks and civil engineering. The beginnings lay in the use of nonwovens as separating and filter layers. Due to the constant further development of geosynthetics, planners of railway infrastructure [...]

Reinforced Soil Structures – From Design to Performance Monitoring

Reinforced Soil Structures - From Design to Performance Monitoring Geogrid reinforced slopes and walls have become very popular over the last decades. First of all, do they offer great flexibility in terms of landscaping aspects, secondly, they provide environmental and economic benefits in terms of saving natural resources such as sand [...]

Geosynthetic Clay Liners (GCLs) in comparison to a compacted Clay Liner

Geosynthetic Clay Liners (GCLs) in comparison to a compacted Clay Liner Over the past 40 years, the advantages in utilising geosynthetic barriers versus traditional barrier materials have been well documented: greater project economy, extended service lives, enhanced environmental protection, greater site safety, etc. Achievements such as conserving water resources and enabling [...]

Basic principles of Carbofol® HDPE geomembrane welding

Basic principles of Carbofol® HDPE geomembrane welding HDPE geomembranes are used worldwide as sealing elements for water retention and in environmental protection. To achieve a fully impervious layer, single geomembrane panels are joined by the methods of hot wedge welding or extrusion welding. These welding methods demand specific machinery and specific [...]

Sustainability in construction. Introduction of GreenLine

Sustainability in construction. Introduction of GreenLine Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in all aspects of everyday life. Geotechnical solutions have long contributed to working more sustainably in the construction industry. In this webinar, you will learn about NAUE’s take on this vital topic. We will share facts about NAUE’s GreenLine and [...]

Coastal protection with geotextile sand containers

Coastal protection with geotextile sand containers Climate change, rising sea levels and shore protection are topics which are discussed worldwide. However, the usual erosion processes along the shoreline as well as along rivers must not be forgotten. In coastal protection, especially on sandy coasts, it is becoming increasingly important to take [...]

Soil improvement with geogrids – Unpaved roads

Soil improvement with geogrids - Unpaved Roads Unpaved low volume roads are used extensively for either temporary or permanent transportation purposes, such as haul roads, access roads or rural roads. These roads will be subjected to problems like excessive rutting and migration of fines from the subgrade into the coarse aggregate [...]

Improving your Barrier Design with Multi-component Geosynthetic Clay Liners (GCLs)

Improving your Barrier Design with Multi-component Geosynthetic Clay Liners (GCLs) While geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) are composite materials by design, the newer wave of multi-component GCLs are enhancing the performance of GCLs in a range of applications in a way that represents a significant jump for an already refined engineered materials [...]
