Geogrid Vs Geotextile: What are the Differences?

Geogrid Vs Geotextile: What are the Differences? Geosynthetics originate from the words Geo = “soil or earth” and Synthetics which means “man-made”. They are man-made materials made from plastics. These petrochemical-based polymers do not initiate a response or interact when introduced to biological tissue. One notable characteristic of geosynthetics is that they will not decompose […]

Shoreline Stabilization Techniques

Shoreline Protection Stabilization Techniques The shoreline is an extremely significant area because it acts as an active habitat for wildlife and fish.  Moreover, shorelines play a critical role in cleaning the stormwater runoff. In this regard, shoreline protection is important because it gives much-needed integrity to the water’s edge and reduces erosion. Shoreline Erosion Shoreline […]

Woven And Non-woven Geotextile: What’s The Difference

Woven and Non-woven Geotextile: What’s The Difference Geotextiles are fabrics that are used in a variety of applications and fields. They are used for soil stability, erosion control, construction, drainage, engineering, and clothing.  Generally, geotextiles are made of synthetic materials such as polypropylene or polyester – this makes it extremely durable.  Their resistance to rot and […]

Methods of Addressing Shore Erosion

Methods of Addressing Shore Erosion Shoreline erosion is a serious issue faced by a lot of countries and areas around the world. With modern advancements in technology, numerous strategies are available to mitigate the issue of erosion. The primary purpose of shoreline protection is to defend the property from shore erosion resulting from wave attacks. […]

Why Are Vertical Drains Important?

When roads, footpaths, parking lots or forest paths are constructed over deep soft soil, it can lead to massive settlements accumulating over an extended period of time.

To speed up this process, vertical drains are installed nearby to provide an alternative route through which pore water can be drained rapidly.

How Geosynthetics are Used in Road Construction

How Geosynthetics are Used in Road Construction Geosynthetics are defined as the products produced from polymeric materials. They are used in various geotechnical engineering projects, soil stabilization and road construction, and are an essential part of man-made construction projects and structures.  There are many types of geosynthetics produced in Malaysia. Generally, the term is used […]

How Does Geosynthetic Help in Ground Improvement

How Does Geosynthetic Help in Ground Improvement Soil Reinforcement is essential to provide stability and controlled deformation to the soil. The soil itself is strong in compression, but weaker in tension. As a result, tensile materials are necessary to stabilize the soil and improve the ground. One common and famous technique of ground improvement is […]
