What are the hydraulic properties of geosynthetics?
The main technical content Geosynthetics is a new kind of geotechnical engineering materials, roughly divided into geotextile, geomembrane, special geosynthetics and composite geosynthetics four categories. Special geosynthetics also include geotextiles, geotextiles, geogrids, geocells, geomembrane bags and geotextile foam.
Geosynthetics has a wide range of functions, a geosynthetics often have several functions. With the development of geotextile composites, both have more features. In general, the main function of geosynthetics can be grouped into six categories, namely, filter function, drainage function, isolation function, seepage prevention function, protection function and reinforcement and reinforcement function.
Geosynthetics classification will continue to change with the development of new materials and new technologies. China in 1998 by the Ministry of Water Resources in conjunction with the relevant departments to develop the "geosynthetics application of technical specifications", the geosynthetics are divided into four categories, namely geotextile, geomembrane, geotextile composite materials and geotextile special materials
