International Geosynthetic Society (IGS) Announces TCH Hydraulics Week

The International Geosynthetic Society (IGS) announces:

IGS-TCH Geohydraulics Week

Geohydraulics in New Orleans LA
November 7 – 9, 2017
Two Separate Events to Support the Development and Implementation of Geohydraulic Technology


The International Geosynthetic Society (IGS) Technical Committee on Hydraulics will host a committee meeting and Think-Tank to discuss three emerging technical topics. This discussion will bring together some of the top-contributors in geohydraulics community to strategize about the path forward on each subject, including considerations of technical consensus vs continuing technical needs, educational efforts and potential publications. Selected individuals will be requested to serve as facilitators to foster discussion and interaction.

For event 2, there will be a two-day engineering seminar on state-of-practice design & construction for coastal and river protection in North America. Attendees at this course will be exposed to the range of technologies available to address hydraulic management. Instructors will address design: criteria, methods & codes – and provide guidance for the evaluation of product performance and selection. Attendees will receive 16 PDH or 2 CEUs.
