26 papers help the reader with the selection, testing, design, and use of geosynthetics. The peer-reviewed volume:
Focuses on the many available geosynthetic material tests that are performed in isolation (index tests)
Contrasts these tests with soil/geosynthetic material tests (performance tests)
Determines if, and what type of, full scale field tests are available
Identifies needs for modification of these tests, or for additional tests that better predict field performance than those that are currently available.
Chemical Resistance of Geomembranes
Test Methods and Procedures to Evaluate Geomembranes
Chemical Resistance of Geotextiles and Other Geosynthetics
