Geotextiles and geomembranes, made from synthetic polymers such as woven or non-woven fabrics, membranes, sheets and composites, have a variety of uses: in erosion control systems, embankments, pollution control systems, water storage, drainage and road construction. Taking all these applications into consideration, numerous laboratory and prototype tests were performed, the results of which have been published in this handbook, which includes sections on: Am geotextile and geomembrane history Am function analysis Am production technology Am project realization Am soil reinforcement Designed for civil engineers, this text covers a broad range of areas and provides a useful handbook for those working with geotextiles and geomembranes.The plan in which civil engineering works had to be realized, for which there were technical solutions available at the time the plan was accepted, resulted in a very revolutionary civil engineering constructing programm at a costlevel for the anbsp;...
