Newcastle Chapter

Geosynthetics in Reinforced Earth Structures

Raymond Chow, Maccaferri Australia

The presentation provided a brief overview of the world of Geosynthetics and latest technologies, with an emphasis on reinforced soil structures and other typical civil engineering applications. Some interesting case studies, local and abroad, were briefly discussed. Innovative technologies in the field were also looked at, including instrumentation using geosynthetics and the use of poor-draining soils for reinforced soil walls.
