Significance and Use
This method evaluates grab tensile properties of reinforced geomembranes for the purposes of quality control, quality assurance and research. In order to evaluate the full contribution of the reinforcement, testing is performed parallel to the directions of reinforcement. This method is an index test and is not intended for design purposes.
1.1 This test method is used to measure the grab tensile properties of reinforced geomembranes.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 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.
