Geosynthetics: An extraordinary handler of water

April 1st, 2020

Most geosynthetics deal with water in some shape or form. Geosynthetics are an extraordinary handler of water, whether the project involves erosion control, water storage, wastewater, stormwater, seawater or mining. This issue of Geosynthetics looks at water applications in several forms. Drainage, leak detection layers, potable water storage, a mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall at […]

A guide for specifying drainage geocomposites

April 1st, 2020

By Lisa L. Damiano and Eric S. Steinhauser In September 2017, ASTM International released its Standard Guide for Specifying Drainage Geocomposites (ASTM D7931). The standard provides a guideline for calculating engineering properties related to drainage geocomposites, specifically allowable flow rate, associated reduction factors and shear strength properties. In basic terms, it codified design procedures so […]
