  • Hybrid Geocell Solution for Rail Track on Expansive Clay

    A Hybrid Geosynthetic Solution was used in a new track foundation over weak expansive clays. This unique solution combines PRS-Neoweb geocells with a geogrid layer to reinforce the sub-ballast layer. Track alignment measurements showed zero degradation, thereby demonstrating the efficacy of the hybrid solution for rail and road soil stabilization and reinforcement applications. ...

  • Great performance comes from articulated concrete blocks

    Whenever you are planning out a construction project, you need to take into account the potential for erosion to occur. Without doing this, not only could you risk sacrificing the quality of the soil on the construction site, but you also risk damaging properties around the site and causing irreparable damage to the local environment. All of this could result in your being slapped with some ...

  • The importance of storm water management: how winter storms can cause soil erosion and damage to property

    As a society, we expect weather to change, storms to vary in severity and damage to be done at some point or another as a result. Engineers dedicate their lives to preparing urban environments for the everyday storms as well as the bad ones that only happen every couple of decades. But regardless of how well a city or town is planned out and managed, our personal, private property is often left ...

  • Automation scheme holds back the tide to improve flood protection

    The River Ritec flows towards Tenby, where it discharges via a 780 metre culvert/outfall system that passes beneath a railway embankment and sand dunes to discharge into the sea below typical low tide level. There is a history of flooding upstream of the culvert which imposes a restriction on the discharge of flows from the river catchment area during high river flow events. This is particularly ...
