Advanced Slope Stability and Geosynthetic Interface Testing
Presented by Stark Consultants, Inc.
Speakers: Timothy D. Stark (U. of Illinois) and Robert H. Swan, Jr. (U. of North Carolina)
ONE DAY SHORT COURSE
Professor Timothy D. Stark (U. of Illinois) and Robert H. Swan, Jr. (U. of North Carolina at Charlotte) will present a one-day short course on slope stability and geosynthetic interface shear testing for geosynthetic lined slopes. Geosynthetic lined slopes are common in water retention ponds and canals, waste containment facilities, and mining applications. Some of the topics that will be covered include: importance of geosynthetic interface strengths in slope stability analyses, static and seismic slope stability, measurement of geosynthetic interface strengths, selection of interface strengths for design, and a comprehensive design example.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Those involved with the engineering design, specification, permitting, and construction of geosynthetic lined slopes should attend this course.
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND
This is an advanced, discussion-oriented short course on the stability of and testing for geosynthetic liner slopes. After completing this course, one should understand:
Timothy D. Stark, Ph.D., P.E., University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; As a Professor of Geotechnical Engineering, Dr. Stark has conducted research and forensics on the static and seismic stability of geosynthetic lined slopes for over 20 years. This has lead to a better understanding of design values for geosynthetic interface strengths for stabiltiy analyses, the importance of interim slope conditions, the shear behavior of GCLs, and 3D slope staiblity effects.
Robert H. Swan, Jr., M.S., University of North Carolina at Charlotte; For over 20 years, Mr. Swan has conducted soil-geosynthetic and geosynthetic-geosynthetic interface tests for design, permitting, and construction of a variety of facilities. The former President/Owner of SGI Testing Sevices, LLC (SGI), Mr. Swan routinely performed testing services for product development, design verification, CQC/CQA, forensics, and research. Mr. Swan, a leader in this field, has been instrumental in developing interface testing devices and procedures and championed the passage of ASTM D5321 and D6243.
