<p>Even though geosynthetics are now a well-established discipline within geotechnical engineering, ingenuity continues to be significant in projects involving their use. This is probably because of the ability to tailor the mechanical and hydraulic properties ...
Relationships between the pore size distribution (PSD) of geotextiles and their airentry suction(¤ła) were quantified experimentally.The bubble point test (ASTM D6767) estimates the filtration performance of a geotextile as characterized by the PSD. The bubble ...
Reference: 5th Asia-Pacific conference on unsaturated soils, Pattaya, Thailand 14-15 November 2011
This study includes an experimental investigation of the transient movement of water in unsaturated soil layers underlain by a geocomposite drainage layer (GDL) during cycles of infiltration and evaporation
Reference: Canadian Geotechnical Journal, Vol. 47, No. 11, November, 2010
This paper provides theoretical background, laboratory data and full-scale measurements useful in understanding the interaction between soils and geosynthetics under unsaturated conditions. It also includes an evaluation of the current state of knowledge regarding ...
Reference: Geosynthetics International, October, 2010, Vol. 17, No. 5
This manual describes various geotextiles, test methods for evaluating their properties, and recommended design and installation procedures.

<p>The increasing use of geotextile-reinforced soil systems for important earth structures requires proper understanding of their behavior and validation of the assumptions in their design. Geotextile reinforcement materials are particularly useful in reinforced ...
Reference: A dissertation submitted in partial satisfaction of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy 10 Engineering-Civil Engineering in the GRADUATE DIVISION of the UNIVERSITY of CALIFORNIA at BERKELEY
<p>This paper reviews the applications for geosynthetics in waste containment. Consideration is given to geotextiles as filters and separators in otherwise conventional landfill design, the use of drainage mats as a replacement for conventional granular drainage ...
