|Publication Date:||1 January 2000|
|ICS Code (Test conditions and procedures in general):||19.020|
|ICS Code (Geotextiles):||59.080.70|
1.1 This practice covers standardized procedures for obtaining samples of geosynthetics from a test section for use in assessment of the effects of damage immediately after installation caused only by the installation techniques. The assessment may include physical testing. This practice is applicable to geotextiles, geomembranes, geogrids, geocomposites, geonets, and geosynthetic clay liners.
1.2 This practice is limited to full-scale field test sections, and does not address laboratory modeling of field conditions. This practice does not address which test method(s) to use for quantifying installation damage.
1.3 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.
