Every year, more and more roads and highways are constructed to meet growing demands. However, this new construction or expansion of infrastructure may end up being built over loose or soft soil that does not have the ability to support the associated loads.
Geomembranes can fail for a variety of reasons. A failure in a geomembrane can result in serious damage to the surrounding environment and ecosystem. In order to help keep your geomembrane performing at its best, here are three common geomembrane failure mechanisms to keep in mind.
Reinforced geomembranes can be specified in a variety of scenarios, from floating covers to secondary containment liners. Highlighted below are three of the most common reinforced geomembrane applications.
Dr. Robert Koerner, professor emeritus of civil engineering at Drexel University, is a highly respected professional in both the geosynthetic and engineering communities. In his webinar, “Wave (or Wrinkle),” Koerner covers unreinforced geomembranes, such as HDPE, and how geomembrane waves or wrinkles can be somewhat prevented and/or fixed. Here is an overview of the webinar:
XR® Geomembranes, a product of Seaman Corporation, will be exhibiting at North America’s leading energy event. Global Petroleum Show (GPS) is set for June 12-14 at Stampede Park in Calgary, Canada.
It is vital to consider the effects of a geomembrane’s exposure to weathering to ensure optimal long-term performance. The most important factor in determining performance in any given environment is the type of polymer used in the geomembrane.
The website has been redesigned in order to give visitors a better user experience as well as give XR Geomembranes the ability to attract, engage, and inform these visitors in a more seamless manner.
