We invite you to attend an educational seminar with “the father of geosynthetics” – Dr. JP Giroud


The seminar will cover two aspects of geosynthetics and is aimed at providing the design professional with an overview of the key aspects to consider when designing with geosynthetics:

  1. Filtration is one of the fundamental functions of geosynthetics – but the least understood. A proper understanding of design methods will help the design engineer prevent clogging of the geotextile or piping of soils in dam design, revetments, sub-surface drainage etc.
  2. Learning from failures of structures incorporating geosynthetics is a powerful educational tool – and Dr JP Giroud will speak about the lessons learned from the failures in several areas of applications of geosynthetics.
