IGS TC-H Geohydraulics Week

  • Costs: $100/person
  • Includes: breakfast break, lunch, coffee break & evening reception

 

The IGS Technical Committee on Hydraulics will host a committee meeting and Think Tank to discuss three emerging technical topics. This discussion will bring together some of the top contributors in the geohydraulics community to strategize about the path forward on each subject, including considerations of technical consensus vs continuing technical needs, educational efforts, and potential publications. Selected individuals will be requested to serve as facilitators to foster discussion and interaction.

  • Topic 1: Geosynthetic Filtration – Terminology and Practice (decoding different filtration application types and considering a publication/tech note to guide users)
  • Topic 2: The use of air as a permeant to measure geosynthetic hydraulic performance (methods, theory and applications)
  • Topic 3: Estimates of long term hydraulic flow (methods and measurements, meeting related design needs, project specific vs general measurements, etc.)

EVENT 2 — Geohydraulics I – Geosynthetics for Coastal & River Protection

Renaissance Pere Marquette New Orleans – November 8 – 9, 2017
Presented by: The International Geosynthetics Society, Technical Committee on Hydraulics.
