Key Features

  • Discusses the fundamentals of geosynthetics
  • Examines various applications in areas such as filters, separators, landfills and foundation materials
  • Reviews quality assurance and the service life of geosynthetics

Description

Geosynthetics are man-made polymer-based materials which facilitate cost effective building, environmental, transportation and other construction projects. Given their versatility, geosynthetics are a vital material in all aspects of civil engineering.

The first section of the book covers the fundamentals of geosynthetics. Chapters discuss the design and durability of geosynthetics together with their material properties and international standards governing their use. Building on these foundations, part two examines the various applications of geosynthetics in areas such as filters, separators, landfills, barriers and foundation materials. The book concludes by reviewing methods of quality assurance and the service life of geosynthetics.

Written by an international team of contributors, Geosynthetics in civil engineering is an essential reference to all those involved in civil engineering.
