This paper summarizes the basic concepts and mechanisms related to the durability of HDPE geomembranes and discusses the factors influencing the service life of geomembrane liners.   This is the last of a three-part study (Grubb et al. , ) that explores the issues related to the use and durability of geotextiles in Andean mining environments. Additional outdoor exposure tests were completed on a woven multi-filament polyester (PET) geotextile, and on two nonwoven needle-punched polypropylene (PP) geotextiles with Cited by: 4.

Designers/specifiers of geosynthetics should evaluate geosynthetic durability as an integral part of the geosynthetic specification/selection process. This guide is intended to guide a designer/specifier through a systematic determination of degradation concerns based on the intended geosynthetic function or performance characteristic. Geotextiles and geomembranes, made from synthetic polymers such as woven or non-woven fabrics, membranes, sheets and composites, have a variety of uses: in erosion control systems, embankments, pollution control systems, water storage, drainage and road construction. Taking all these applications into consideration, numerous laboratory and prototype tests were performed, the results of which 4/5(2).

Survivability and Durability of a Nonwoven Geotextile. This paper presents the results of a field investigation and laboratory testing program to evaluate the properties of two different polypropylene, thermally-bonded nonwoven geotextiles exhumed from seven existing unpaved road structures. The results of the field investigation and test program are used to assess the construction Author: R Bonaparte, C Ah-Line, R Charron, L Tisinger.

Introduction to geotextile durability assessment. Geotextiles are formulated, manufactured, purchased, and applied with a prediction and expectation of delivered service life or design life.

For purposes of this discussion, the design life of a geotextile is the required time during which the geotextile must possess all required properties. and, insofar as this has been published, the name of the author, are clearly mentioned. "© CUR Durability of Geosynthetics, Stichting CURNET, Gouda, The Netherlands.

Page 4 of 20 Figure 1: Improved molecular orientation of high-tenacity fibres Low-cost fibre is also available within the market, usually as a by-product of another manufacturing process.

Understanding and Improving the Durability of Textiles Exposure conditions can also cause a reduction in the strength retention and durability of geotextiles, which in turn affects their long-term performance. Understanding and improving the durability of textiles is an indispensable book for textile scientists, technologists, engineers.
