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 would like access to the content but are not a current member of the IGS, please refer to our Membership section of the site. You will be pleased with the reasonable cost and benefits associated with becoming an IGS Member.
