Geosynthetics testing

Eli Cuelho’s work in Geosynthetics in Subgrade Stabilization project, Geosythetica.net announces TenCate Mirafi® RS580i outperformed all geosynthetics tested by WTI. TenCate Geosynthetics develops and produces synthetic fabrics, non-wovens, wovens and geogrids, and creates design solutions and systems for infrastructure and civil technology. Their factories are located in Europe, North America and Asia. Recent conversations between WTI and TenCate Geosynthetics resulted in a verbal commitment of $85,000 to improve WTI’s laboratory testing facilities in Belgrade, Montana to create the ability to conduct full-scale testing of geosynthetics indoors using WTI’s automated trafficking device. TenCate is currently reviewing the contract language and work is anticipated to begin next month.
