Proceedings of sessions of Geo-Denver 2000, held in Denver, Colorado, August 5-8, 2000. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE.
This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 27 papers that outline the current trends and developments in the rapidly
evolving use of geosynthetics in critical engineering projects. Advances in geosynthetics have led to significant innovations
in the design of geotechnical and geoenvironmental systems during
the last several decades. New geosynthetic barrier systems have
been developed and fully incorporated into modern landfill design,
a proliferation of geosynthetics in hydraulic applications have
reduced the need for granular filters and drains, and amazing
advances in reinforced soil technology have revolutionized the way
in which engineers now think of walls and embankments.
These technical papers discuss advances in design and
application of geosynthetics in the areas of geoenvironmental
systems, hydraulic systems, and reinforced soil systems. A section is devoted specifically to monitoring
systems reinforced with geosynthetics. Keynote papers on landfill
failures and full scale testing of geosynthetic reinforced soil
retaining walls are also included.
