Committee on Geosynthetics to Host Geogrid Aperture Stability Workshop

ASTM Committee D35 on Geosynthetics will present a workshop on the possibility of creating a geogrid aperture stability standard during the June Committee Week in Reno, Nev. The workshop will take place June 15 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Steve Valero, vice president - technology, Tensar, will chair the workshop. Valero promises a productive and lively workshop that will focus on educating all attendees on the process, purpose and application of an aperture stability test. Presenters will include academics/researchers, as well as representatives of testing labs and materials manufacturers.

“The ultimate goal of this meeting is to begin to identify the consensus of the group as it relates to the development of a standard for this test method,” says Valero. According to Valero, the proposed standard will be designed to measure geogrid aperture resistance to torsion force, similar to that induced on aggregate by rolling wheel loads.
