Story of a Photo: Geomembrane Integrity Survey from a Crane

0
While nosing around in Geosynthetica's archives, we happened upon an interesting photo (dated 2004) of Ian Peggs conducting a liner integrity survey while suspended from a crane. Though liner integrity surveys are common, the conditions in which they must be conducted vary wildly. We asked Dr. Peggs if he might offer a few notes about this particular situation. Here's what he shared with us. Read more.

The hilly terrain of Taiwan and annual rainy seasons can provide significant challenges to engineers and road builders. When an important road was disrupted by a partial slope failure, engineers decided to rebuild with geogrid-reinforced tiers. The case study comes from Ace Geosynthetics, a Taiwan-headquartered manufactured now with offices in Atlanta and Houston.
