Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 May 1996
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
scope:

1.1 This test method covers evaluating the deterioration in tensile strength and strain after outdoor exposure.

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.

1.5 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
