National Terzaghi lecture: Protecting the environment with geosynthetics

Abstract Geosynthetics are now widely used to contain fluids and protect the environment. Applications include most modern landfills, lagoons for contaminated fluid and drinking water, dams, and mining applications where loss of fluid to surface water or groundwater must be minimized. These systems often involve a single liner with welded panels of geomembrane liner, a More Information…

Small Earth Dams

Abstract Small earth dams are by far the most common type and size of dam in the world. While the consequences of failure of a small earth dam are typically much less than for a large dam, the probability of failure of a small earth dam is typically much greater than for a large dam.

New Approaches to Driven Pile Acceptance

About the presentation This presentation will be in two parts. The first part relates to a driven pile project in which the world’s largest pile driving hammer is being used. This part will highlight the uncertainties of prediction of pile driving behaviour and the differences between driving piles ‘on paper’ and ‘in practice’, and draw More Information…

Improved understanding of Melbourne’s hydrogeology gained from investigations and numerical modelling of large civil infrastructure projects

The AGS together with the IAH invite you to this presentation. About the presentation The presentation will be presented by a Principal Hydrogeologist and will provide an overview of the hydrogeological setting and groundwater flow system within the Melbourne area using examples of hydrogeological investigation and modelling work undertaken for some of recent infrastructure projects More Information…

In-Situ Groundwater Remediation Technology

The AGS together with the CGSE invite you to this presentation. Abstract Severe situation of organics-contaminated groundwater calls for effective in-situ remediation technology. Micro-nano-bubbles (MNBs), with diameters ranging from tens of nanometers to tens of micrometers, present rapid mass transfer rates, persist for a relatively long time in water, and transport with groundwater flow, which More Information…
