The International Geosynthetics Society (IGS), Technical Committee on Hydraulics, will host a committee meeting and Think Tank event to discuss three emerging technical topics.
This discussion will bring together some of the top contributors in the 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.
For event No 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. They will provide guidance for the evaluation of product performance and selection.
The two events will be held November 7-9, 2017, at the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel in New Orleans, LA.
