    geosynthetic; performance test; pullout resistance; soil; soil-geosynthetic interface;


    The current geosynthetic standard is widely used for all types of reinforcement commonly used in MSE, RSS and other types of soil reinforcing structures where pullout performance is needed structures. Due to the complexity of the structures and the current use of this standard it was requested to update the standard to expand to other types of reinforcement utilized, update some technical aspects of the standard particularly those related to the size of the pullout box, constraints on the procedure and reflect the current state of the practice for pullout test.
