FIGURE 1 Geosynthetic strap installation. Photo courtesy of Maccaferri The Geosynthetic Institute (GSI) now has a revised test method for determining the tensile properties of geosynthetic straps. They are an extremely strong reinforcement element for mechanically stabilized structures. These soil reinforcing elements consist of high-strength extensible geosynthetic reinforcing straps that are connected through a sleeve […]
