The next IGS North America webinar will focus on Erosion Control with Geosynthetics. Presenter Markus Wilke (HUESKER) brings more than a decade of experience to the presentation, including a very deep background in hydraulic engineering and coastal protection and remediation. He has published extensively on topics such as dewatering, port maintenance, bank stabilization, and waterway engineering.

EROSION CONTROL WITH GEOSYNTHETICS
In summarizing the presentation, Wilke and IGS North America write:
Erosion is a natural process, resulting from the interaction between water and soil. Unfortunately, this can cause severe damage to infrastructure and endanger people’s lives. Culverts, roads, bridge foundations, embankments, landfill slopes, MSE walls, and other critical pieces of infrastructure are susceptible. With greater urbanization occurring around the world and population centers swelling along coastlines and rivers, the collective need to better manage erosion threats has intensified.
Geosynthetics provide highly engineered solutions for solving all of these erosion problems.
KEY TOPICS IN THE LIVE WEBINAR:
- Naturally occurring erosion processes
- Available geosynthetic product and system approaches
- Geosynthetic mitigation measures
- Case studies
This IGS North America webinar is ideal for environmental engineers, infrastructure-owning agencies, design engineers, municipal engineers, regulators, general contractors, and other stakeholders.
