This launch was held on Tuesday 22nd November, 2011, at 10am at the University of the West Indies St. Augustine Principal's Office.

Dr. Mwasha is a Lecturer of structural engineering at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering.

About the Book:
Over the last 50 years there has been rapid development of construction techniques, analytical methods and materials for use in ground engineering. One of the major techniques that has been developed is soil strenghtening or reinforcement, whereby man made elements are included within geological material to provide a stabalised mass.

In this book, the application of both vegetable and man made fibres in situations where there is a requiremnet for short-term ground reinforcement are examined and discussed. The use of vegetable fibre geotextiles, particalarly in erosion control and soil reinforcemnet, is covered on detail, with examples from various civil engineering applications.
