Geotextiles: From Design to Applications by Robert Koerner

By Robert Koerner

Geotextiles: From layout to Applications provides helpful info at the excessive functionality materials utilized in soil separation, drainage, filtration, reinforcement, and cushioning. those polymeric fabrics provide recommendations for geoengineering and different civil engineering specialties because of their complicated actual, mechanical, hydraulic, and persistence houses.

This very important booklet bargains finished insurance of the manufacture, services, houses, designs, and purposes of geotextiles. half One starts off with a bankruptcy at the background of geotextiles, via chapters giving targeted reports of the kinds of materials and their production approaches, from resin sort, to fiber extrusion, to cloth fabrication. half covers the homes, habit, and checking out of geotextiles, with half 3 targeting purposes facing the explicit fundamental features of geotextiles. partly 4, chapters supply quite a few common functions of geotextiles, together with these in waste containment, marine engineering, walls/slopes, agriculture, and erosion regulate. ultimately, the chapters of half 5 tackle quality controls and coverage for geotextiles, and the more and more very important subject of sustainability.

Artificial seaweed tufted into a multifilament woven fabric was developed in 1965 by Sun Oil Co. and used to encourage sand buildup in the seabed and prevent further erosion. Both Nicolon and ICI followed with similar applications in the late 1960s (Brashears and Dartnell, 1967). , Burlington Industries, and the Mirafi Co. in the late 1960s (Koerner and Welsh, 1980). Terzaghi and Lacroix (1964) used concrete-filled woven nylon flexible forms to close an irregular surface between steel sheeting and a rock abutment surface of a dam in Canada (Mission Dam, later renamed Terzaghi Dam).

The Netherlands Geotextile Organization was one of the first professional organizations to bring together individuals in manufacturing, design, testing, and governmental agencies and was the forerunner of many more to come (Ogink, 1975; Van Santvoort, 1995). In France, Giroud (1986) reported that Rhone-Poulenc began manufacturing needle-punched nonwoven fabrics from continuous filaments in the 1960s. Nonwovens in unpaved roads for separation and stabilization began in 1968. , 1977) were being constructed.
