Standard Test Method for Determining Tensile Properties of Geogrids by the Single or Multi-Rib Tensile Method
|Publication Date:||10 February 2001|
|ICS Code (Geotextiles):||59.080.70|
These test methods cover the determination of the tensile strength properties of geogrids by subjecting strips of varying width to tensile loading.
Three alternative procedures are provided to determine the tensile strength, as follows:
Method A - Testing a single geogrid rib in tension (N or lbf).
Method B - Testing multiple geogrid ribs in tension (kN/m or lbf/ft).
Method C - Testing multiple layers of multiple geogrid ribs in tension (kN/m or lbf/ft)
This test method is intended for quality control and conformance testing of geogrids.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound values stated in parentheses are provided for information only.
