Following the structure of previous editions, Volume 1 of this Sixth Edition proceeds through four individual chapters on geosynthetics, geotextiles, geogrids and geonets. Volume 2 continues with geomembranes, geosynthetic clay liners, geofoam and geocomposites. The two volumes must accompany one another. All are polymeric materials used for myriad applications in geotechnical, geoenvironmental, transportation, hydraulic and private development applications. The technology has become a worldwide enterprise with approximate $5B material sales in the 35-years since first being introduced. In addition to describing and illustrating the various materials; the most important test methods and design examples are included as pertains to specific application areas. This latest edition differs from previous ones in that sustainability is addressed throughout, new material variations are presented, new applications are included and references are updated accordingly. Each chapter includes problems for which a solutions manual is available.Sincethe test greatly resembles a directshear test, albeitwith stationary soil on both sides of the tensioned geotextile, a possible design ... However, this maynot bea conservative practice. Test ... As conventionally defined with soils in geotechnical engineering, the porosity ofageotextile istheratioofvoid volume to total volume.
