Geotechnical Frontiers 2017

Last week, Geotechnical Frontiers 2017 provided an opportunity for CSU professors and graduate students disseminate research findings, reconnect with old friends, and make new friends. A few highlights from the conference:

MS student Joel Conzelmann presented a study (co-authored with Professors Shackelford & Scalia) on the Effect of Backpressure Saturation on the Hydraulic Conductivity of GCLs.

PhD student Shahin Ghazi Zadeh presented a study (co-authored with Professor Bareither) on the Temperature-Dependent Shear Behavior of Geosynthetic Clay Liners.

PhD student Mohammad Gorakhki presented a study (co-authored with Professor Bareither) on The Viability of Using the Mixtures of Mine Tailings and Waste Rock in Water Balance Covers:
