1.1 This guide covers a designer/specifier through a systematic determination of those factors of the appropriate application environment that may affect the post-construction service life of a geosynthetic. Subsequently, test methods are recommended to facilitate an experimental evaluation of the durability of geosynthetics in a specified environment so that the durability can be considered in the design process.
(A) Functions are used in the context of this guide as terms that can be quantitatively described by standard tests or design techniques, or both.(B) Other performance characteristics are qualitative descriptions that are not yet supported by standard tests or generally accepted design techniques.
Note-during the placement of fresh concrete in a geotextile flexible form, the geosynthetic functions temporarily as a filter to allow excess water to escape.
1.2 This guide is not intended to address durability issues associated with the manufacturing, handling, transportation, or installation environments.
