Technical Details

Separation

Separation function is defined as: “The preventing from intermixing of
adjacent dissimilar soils and/or fill materials by the use of a geotextile or a geotextile-related product
”. The use of the geotextile preserves and improves the integrity and function of the different materials.
Benefits:

  • Prevents mixing of the construction layers
  • Improves the compaction properties of the aggregate layer
  • Provides long-term stability of foundation layers
  • Increases bearing capacity by avoiding aggregate material loss into the subgrade

Filtration

The filtration function is defined as “The restraining of soil or other particles subjected to hydrodynamic forces while allowing the passage of fluids into or across a geotextile’’. Efficient geotextile filters must have pores of

different shape, size and size distribution similar to the particle size distribution of soil.

Benefits:

  • Prevents the migration of fine material into coarse material as a result of water flow in the soil
  • Maintains the water flow in the soil with a minimum of pressure loss
  • Prevents the migration of fine material as a result of pump effects from dynamic loads such as traffic

Drainage

The drainage function is defined as “The collecting and transporting of precipitation, groundwater and/or other fluids in the plane of the geotextile”.

Benefits:

  • Geotextiles as a drainage element is a simple and well-defined solution
  • Using geotextile drainage elements gives high drainage capacity per volume compared to traditional drainage gravel layers
  • Reduces the water level and reduces the opening pressure in the soil
  • Ensures that water and/or other fluids are drained with a minimum of pressure loss

Protection

The protection function is defined as “The prevention or limiting of local damage to a given element or material by the use of a geotextile”.

Benefits:

  • Gives high, durable protection to the waterproofing liner
  • Fast and Easy installation compared to soil layers

Reinforcement

The reinforcement function is defined as “The use of the stress-strain behaviour of a geotextile or a geotextile-related product to improve the mechanical properties of soil or other construction materials”.

Benefits:

  • A cost effective and safe solution for the reinforcement of retaining structures and embankments on soft soils
  • Improves soil stabilization and bearing capacity
