Standard Guide for Mechanical Attachment of Geomembrane to Penetrations or Structures
|Publication Date:||10 January 2002|
|ICS Code (Geotextiles):||59.080.70|
This guide covers procedures that can be employed to mechanically attach fabricated geomembranes to structures, pipes, etc.
This guide does not address all problems or situations a geomembrane installer or design engineer may face in the attachment of geomembranes to structures, pipes, etc. The sole purpose of this standard guide is to point out typical problems with geomembrane attachments and clearly state objectives of each component of the geomembrane attachment(s).
This guide has been generated for geomembrane application( s); however, a geomembrane installer or design engineer, or both, may find portions of this guide applicable to other geosynthetics.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
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.
