PUBLICATIONS AND PRESENTATIONS
In Dr. Peggs' 25 years of experience investigating
and testing polymers, primarily geosynthetics, he has acquired
a great deal of information concerning materials durability
and how that characteristic corresponds to the success or
failure of the application of a given material in its environment.
Dr. Peggs shares this valuable information
in his publications and presentations as listed below:

6th International Symposium on Thermal Expansion, Ed. Peggs,
