GCL Standard Specification GRI-GCL3: background and development, limitations and latest updates

About the webinar:
The Geosynthetic Institute’s (GSI) GRI-GCL3 specification covers the manufacturing quality control (MQC) of geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs), describing types of tests, the test methods, minimum and sometimes maximum values, and the minimum testing frequencies. This webinar will review the background to the development of this specification, the basis and theory behind each property and value, latest and future updates, and how this specification should be used in design specifications.
