GMA/IGS-NA to present webinar on geosynthetic-stabilized roads


November 2nd, 2018 / By: IFAI / Geocells, Geogrids, Geotextiles, Resources, Transportation


The Geosynthetic Materials Association (GMA) and IGS North America (IGS-NA) will sponsor a free webinar entitled “Recent Developments in Geosynthetic-Stabilized Roads: Introduction and Mechanisms,” on Dec. 4, from 1 to 2 p.m. EST.


Geotextiles, geogrids and geocells have been used widely in roadway stabilization works throughout the world. In this webinar, Dr. Jie Han will deliver an introduction to geosynthetics in roadway engineering. His presentation will focus on the mechanisms involved in geosynthetic stabilization of unpaved and paved roads. Dr. Han is one of the leading practitioners in this area of geosynthetic design and research, and his work has contributed significantly to field understanding on how we can improve soil mechanical properties with geosynthetics and how these design decisions may involve two different functions/mechanisms—reinforcement and stabilization—which depend on geosynthetic/soil properties and loading conditions. The webinar will illustrate the differences and relationships between reinforcement and stabilization by geosynthetics in roads and discuss the selection of proper geosynthetics for specific applications based on controlling mechanisms.


Dr. Han is the Glenn L. Parker Professor of Geotechnical Engineering in the Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering Department at the University of Kansas. He has nearly 30 years of teaching, research and practical experience in geotechnical and pavement engineering focused on geosynthetics and ground improvement. Dr. Han has authored more than 300 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers as well as the book Principles and Practice of Ground Improvement.


Woven/nonwoven geotextiles are designed for separation, stabilization, filtration and reinforcement in a range of applications. Made from polyester or polypropylene geotextile fabrics, the geotextiles are available in standard and customized models making them versatile enough in various industries.
