Synthetic or natural fabrics used in engineering to separate layers of granular material.
A product used as a soil reinforcement agent and as a filter medium. It is made of synthetic fibers manufactured in a woven or loose nonwoven manner to form a blanket-like product.
A planar, textile, polymeric product.
A thick cloth, like felt, which protects the geomembrane.
A synthetic fabric utilized in soil stabilization and reinforcement of roads and streambeds.
Textile made from synthetic fibers, usually nonbiodegradable. Geotextiles can be woven or nonwoven and have varying degrees of porosity. They are used as moisture barriers, for separation or reinforcement of soils, for filtration, and for drainage.
a permeable fabric material made from synthetic polymers
a synthetic permeable textile
Web shaped, water permeable, ground cover made from recycled plastic. It is used as a construction aid in site hardening as an underlay to gravel. It protects areas which are exposed to high natural and human activities such as walking tracks and helps prevent erosion.
Synthetic fabric used to return soil while allowing water to pass through the soil and fabric into drainage collection system.
A fabric manufactured from synthetic fiber that is designed to achieve specific engineering objectives, including seepage control, media separation (e.g., between sand and soil), filtration, or the protection of other construction elements such as geomembranes.
A woven fabric capable of passing water but able to hold back soil.
any permeable textile material used with soil, rock or any other geotechnical engineering related material, as an integral part of a man-made product, structure or system, usually related to the passage of water.
a permeable textile cloth used in contact with soil or rock as part of a civil engineering operation.
A nonwoven or tightly woven fabric used to restrict the flow of the soil particles and other contaminants while allowing water to pass freely through; used for protection to keep drainage systems from clogging.
A woven or nonwoven thermoplastic sheet material intended to allow the passage of water, but not fines, and without collecting fines at the soil-textile interface.
Fabric used in civil engineering applications such as roads, dams, airfields, and roofs.
Any permeable textile material used for filtration, drainage, separation, reinforcement and stabilisation purposes as an integral part of civil engineering structures of earth, rock or other constructional materials.
synthetic fabrics used to separate backfill materials for proper drainage; used in high retaining walls and landscape design.
Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect, or drain. As the use of geotextile fabrics has expanded there has been the introduction of geotextile composites and the development of products such as geogrids and meshes. Overall these materials are referred to as geosynthetics and each configuration - geonets, geogrids and others - can yield certain benefits in geotechnical and environmental engineering design.
