    ASTM D6575

    Significance and Use

    4.1 In general this test method is adapted from tests developed for woven fabrics (previously designated as Test Method D1388).

    4.2 The cantilever test method may not be suitable for testing products that are very limp or have a marked tendency to curl or twist at a cut edge.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the stiffness of geosynthetics used as Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRM).

    1.2 The method is applicable to TRMs of any fiber content and any number of components.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
