scope:

1.1 These test methods cover the determination of small-strain tensile properties of geogrids and geotextiles by subjecting wide-width specimens to cyclic tensile loading.

1.2 These test methods (A, B, and C) allow for the determination of small-strain cyclic tensile modulus by the measurement of cyclic tensile load and elongation.

1.3 This test method is intended to provide properties for design. The test method was developed for mechanistic-empirical pavement design methods requiring input of the reinforcement tensile modulus. The use of cyclic modulus from this test method for other applications involving cyclic loading should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

1.4 Three test methods (A, B, and C) are provided to determine small-strain cyclic tensile modulus on geogrids and geotextiles.

1.4.1 Test Method A-Testing a relatively wide specimen of geogrid in cyclic tension in kN/m (lbf/ft).

1.4.2 Test Method B-Testing multiple layers of a relatively wide specimen of geogrid in cyclic tension in kN/m (lbf/ft).

1.4.3 Test Method C-Testing a relatively wide specimen of geotextile in cyclic tension in kN/m (lbf/ft).

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.7 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
