New Test Method for Determining Tensile Properties of Geostrips

1. Scope

1.1 This test method determines the tensile strength properties of geostrips by subjecting the strip to tensile loading.
1.2 This test method is intended for quality control and conformance testing of geosynthetic strips.


geostrip, tensile test, stress strain of geostrips, index test, geosynthetic


Currently, ASTM does not have a separate standard for geosynthetic strips. Geostrip manufacturers are forced to use a modification on ASTM D6637 method A, causing market interpretation problems for specifiers and certification bodies. This proposed standard addresses this issue.

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