This section offers a wide variety of geosynthetics technical information. This information is a product of the IGS Education and Technical committees as well as a number of other hard-working IGS volunteers. Information developed for the IGS is created and peer-reviewed by the foremost geosynthetics academics and practitioners world-wide. Much of the information is publicly available, however, some information is restricted to IGS Members only.
If you are an IGS Member, please log in to the website to gain access to the member’s only content. If you would like access to the content but are not a current member of the IGS, please refer to our Membership section of the site.
