GeoReinforcementThe International Geosynthetics Society Technical Committee on Reinforcement (TC-R) will welcome civil and geotechnical engineering professionals from around the world to the 1st GeoReinforcement Workshop 4 – 5 June 2018 in Munich, Germany. This unique gathering combines high-level presentations from leading practitioners in the field with significant audience discussion time, enabling participants to share project experience, exchange technical concerns and solutions, and network with colleagues who influence diverse applications such as MSE walls, steep slopes, veneer stability, embankments, bridge abutments, and more.

The two-day GeoReinforcement Workshop is co-located with the GeoBarrier Workshop, which takes place 6 – 7 June 2018. Note: Each workshop requires a separate registration fee. Both can be paid for at the same time via the online registration page. Please see the Workshop page to learn more.

The IGS Technical Committee – Reinforcement (TC-R) workshop will dedicate a half-day to each of the following technical topics:

  • Facings of Walls and Steep Slopes
  • Use of Recycled and Amended Marginal Backfills in MSE and Reinforced Embankments/Slopes
  • Design of Load-Carrying MSE Bridge Abutments
  • Reinforced Veneer Stability

The workshop includes 21 presentations, four blocks of attendees case study/topic contributions, do’s and don’ts summaries, and a compilation of summary documents. Speakers include field luminaries such as Richard Bathurst, John Sankey, Chaido Doulala Rigby, George Koerner, Dimiter Alexiew, Jorge Zornberg, and Pietro Rimoldi. Presentation topics include some of the most pressing issues of the day: veneer stability and seismicity; MSE abutment load carrying; long-term performance of GRS walls; flexible reinforced facings; differing international approaches and standards; and much more.
