Welcome to the homepage of the IGS UK Chapter

We are dedicated to the scientific and engineering development of geotextiles, geomembranes, related products and associated technologies.

Comments are welcomed by the Committee.
I am delighted to see the new IGS UK Chapter website up and running. I hope that this will provide IGS members in the UK all the up-to-date information on Chapter activities as well as information from further afield. The website has certainly come a long way from the one that I put together in 2004!
-Dr. Russell Jones, Current IGS President and Past IGS UK Chairman

IGS UK Symposium: Use of Geosynthetics in Rail: Towards 2025 @ National Rail Museum, York
Apr 18 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

The UK Chapter of the International Geosynthetic Society (IGS) will be running a symposium at the National Railway Museum in York on the 18th April 2018.

 

About the Event

With high-speed railways planned across the world, budget limitations pressing for ever more efficient structures and the Paris Agreement demanding more sustainable solutions, there are many challenges to overcome in the rail sector.

The UK chapter of the IGS want to educate the Industry about the use of geosynthetics in Rail. The symposium will showcase the established use of geosynthetics in rail applications from around the world for over 30 years. It will also discuss how they could be utilised in high speed networks to create steeper embankments, construct abutments, facilitate drainage and many other uses.

The one-day event will bring together consultants, contractors, academics and suppliers with experience of the opportunities and challenges of utilising geosynthetics in rail infrastructure. Speakers include HS2, specialist rail contractors and consultants, professionals from network operators in France, Spain, Italy and Germany and world leading academics from Japan, amongst others.
