1.1 This guide covers guidelines for the acceptance testing frequency requirements for geonet and geonet drainage geocomposite materials describing types of tests, test methods, and recommended verifications.
1.2 This guide is intended to aid purchasers, installers, contractors, owners, operators, designers, and agencies in establishing a minimum level of effort for product acceptance testing and verification. This is intended to assure that the supplied geonet and/or geonet drainage geocomposite roll(s) meet accepted material specifications.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.4 This guide offers an organized collection of information or a series of options and does not recommend a specific course of action. This guide cannot replace education or experience and should be used in conjunction with professional judgment. Not all aspects of this guide may be applicable in all circumstances. This guide is not intended to represent or replace the standard of care by which the adequacy of a given professional service must be judged, nor should this guide be applied without consideration of a project's many unique aspects. The word "Standard" in the title of this guide means only that the guide has been approved through the ASTM International consensus process.
1.5 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.
