1.2 The deterioration is assessed as a reduction in strength and strain at failure from the unexposed geotextile.
1.3 The specific location of the light and weather exposure is made on the basis of a site specific decision between the parties involved.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.
