  • 3-D Woven Technology: The “Next Generation” in Turf Reinforcement Mats

    The designers at Propex have taken the technology in their high performance turf reinforcement mats (HPTRMs) and used it to design the next generation of turf reinforcement mats (TRMs). These new netless, composite-free three-dimensional woven TRMs are designed to deliver superior, long-term performance, and are proven to outperform traditional methods like rock riprap, concrete paving and first ...

  • High performance vegetated solutions-research synopsis

    Research objective Measure performance of the Geoweb® (GW) material combined with a turf reinforcement mat (TRM) (integrated system) with topsoil infill and vegetation under varying shear stresses and flow rates to quantify both hydraulic forces and corresponding soil loss. The test consisted of a series of continuous one-hour flows over the GW-TRM system at incrementally increasing ...

  • ArmorMax® is Solution for Alberta, Canada Transportation case study

    Background In Alberta Canada. Alberta Transportation identified two ditches. H614:02 north ditch and H894:04 east ditch that had experienced severe erosion. Both ditches service drainage needs for adjacent farmland that comprises hundreds of acres of land. The bed slopes on the two ditches averaged approximately 7%, which enabled the silty soils to easily erode even during modest storm ...

  • Gordy Pump Station - St. Mary Parish Gordy, LA case study

    The first levee armoring project designed by the New Orleans District of the Corp of Engineers (COE) post Hurricane Katrina utilized Armor-Max®, an Anchored Reinforced Vegetation System. It was installed in December 2006 on the land side of the levee to prevent erosion from overtopping. ArmorMax® is a combination of a high performance turf reinforcement mat (HPTRM) and earth percussion ...

  • Erosion and Sediment Control: Navigating NPDES Regulations, the SWPPP, and Techniques for Compliance

    Erosion and Sedimentation: Why Are They a Problem? The US Environmental Protection Agency lists sediment as the single most common pollutant in rivers, streams, lakes, and reservoirs. With all the potentially harmful chemicals and substances in the world, it seems odd to many people that sediment—dirt, essentially—is singled out as the major culprit. Yet these particles of ...
