|ICS Code (Geotextiles):||59.080.70|
This test method covers the determination of the tensile properties of nonreinforced geomembranes in the form of standard dumbbell-shaped test specimens when tested under defined conditions of pretreatment, temperature and machine speed.
This test method can be used for testing materials thickness between 0.5 mm (0.02 in) and 14 mm (0.55 in.).
Test data obtained by this test method is relevant and may be appropriate for use in engineering design with consideration of test conditions as compared to in-service conditions.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
