Dynamic Geomembrane Applications – What to consider

Posted by Felon Wilson on Aug 11, 2022 9:33:51 AM

Some see geomembranes as static fluid barriers, which means they are not subject to movement nor are they expected to carry any load. This includes load induced by the geomembrane’s weight itself and any weight imparted onto the geomembrane by redundant protective layers. However, there are common situations where movement of the geomembrane is inherent to some degree in the application.

In this post, we will take a look at these applications.
