    Revision of D4884 - 09e1 Standard Test Method for Strength of Sewn or Thermally Bonded Seams of Geotextiles

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D35.01 | Committee D35 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK39140


    Keywords

    geotextile; seam weld; sewn seam; thermally bonded seam; Breaking strength/tenacity; Failure end point--soil/related materials; Field testing--geosynthetics; Geosynthetics; Seams; Strength--geosynthetics; Tensile properties/testing--geosynthetics; Wet testing; Sewn seams;

    Rationale

    The current version of D4884 does not allow to test adhesive bonded seams. In order to permit adhesive bonded seams to be evaluated using ASTM D4884, a few revisions were made to the standard. These revisions do not affect the current procedure applicable to sewn or thermally bonded seams. A change in the title was also found to be necessary.
