ASTM WK65290

    New Test Method for Determining Tensile Strength of Geohazard Nettings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.25 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This test method covers an index test to determine the tensile strength of geohazard nettings.


    Geohazard Netting, Ring Net, Wire Net, Wire Mesh, Rockfall Netting, Rockfall Mesh


    The tensile strength of the geohazard netting is an important characteristic for rock slope stability. The tensile strength of the geohazard netting helps prevent rocks from initiating movement that could create a rockfall hazard.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
