Barrier Systems

IGS Technical Committee on Barrier Systems

The Technical Committee on Barrier Systems (TC-B) is dedicated to the scientific and engineering development of geosynthetic barrier systems and associated technologies. This committee promotes the knowledge, technology, research findings, design, and construction methodologies related to geosynthetic barrier applications, such as guarding against seepage loss, preventing infiltration, improving the flow of fluids, protecting groundwater, and isolating contaminated soils in geotechnical and geo-environmental engineering.

Our Work

The TC-B’s work includes:

  • leaflets on specific barrier related topics including landfill, mining, groundwater protection, hydraulic engineering, wastewater, agriculture/aquaculture, oil and gas and coal ash.
  • an educational video on geosynthetic barrier applications.
