Status: active
Page Count: 27
scope:

This is a materials specification covering geosynthetics for use in subsurface drainage, separation, stabilization, erosion control, temporary silt fence, paving, and soil (walls and slopes). This is a material purchasing specification and design review of use is recommended.

This specification sets forth a set of physical, mechanical, and endurance properties that must be met or exceeded by the geosynthetic being manufactured.

In the context of quality systems and management, this specification represents a manufacturing quality control (MQC) document. However, its general use is essentially as a recommended design document.

This specification is intended to assure both good quality and performance of geosynthetics used as listed in Section 1.1, but is possibly not adequate for the complete specification in a specific situation, especially in reinforcement applications. Additional tests, more restrictive values for the tests indicated, or values based on project specific design may be necessary under conditions of a particular application.

Minimum strength values provided in this specification are based on geosynthetic survivability from installation stresses. Designers should be aware that the classes and/or property requirements in this specification reflect this basic premise. Refer to Appendix X1 for most geosynthetic construction guidelines.
