Standard Test Method for Determining Geonet Breaking Force

Significance and Use

5.1 This method evaluates tensile breaking force of geonets for the purposes of quality control and quality assurance. Testing is performed parallel to the machine direction only, for that is the primary direction that geonets witness tensile loading. This method is an index test and is not intended for design purposes.

Scope

1.1 This test method is used to measure the breaking force of a geonet.

1.2 This test is applicable for manufacturing quality control (MQC) and construction quality assurance (CQA) testing, and is not recommended as a performance test.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.4 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
