Following the structure of previous editions, Volume 1 of this Sixth Edition proceeds through four individual chapters on geosynthetics, geotextiles, geogrids and geonets. Volume 2 continues with geomembranes, geosynthetic clay liners, geofoam and geocomposites. The two volumes must accompany one another. All are polymeric materials used for myriad applications in geotechnical, geoenvironmental, transportation, hydraulic and private development applications. The technology has become a worldwide enterprise with approximate $5B material sales in the 35-years since first being introduced. In addition to describing and illustrating the various materials; the most important test methods and design examples are included as pertains to specific application areas. This latest edition differs from previous ones in that sustainability is addressed throughout, new material variations are presented, new applications are included and references are updated accordingly. Each chapter includes problems for which a solutions manual is available.

Geosynthetic materials have entered the mainstream in the professional arena and are no longer considered new construction material. Professionals need to keep up with the nuances of how geosynthetics work.Emphasizes design by function; overviews all types of geosynthetics, with stand-alone units on particular materials. Uses S.I. units for all problems and examples. Expands coverage of containers and tubes in the geotextile chapter. Discusses walls and slope design, including seismic analysis, in the geogrid chapter. Treats wet landfills, agricultural waste, waste stability, and dam waterproofing in the geomembrane chapter. Discusses new products and related performances in the geosynthetic clay liner chapter. Discusses new products and related behavior, including fiber reinforcement and wall drainage, in the geocomposite chapter. Adds a completely new chapter on geofoam.A useful reference for transportation, geotechnical, environmental, and hydraulics professionals and engineers.

Volume 04.13 focuses on the mechanical, endurance, permeability, and filtration properties of geosynthetics. This includes standards for geosynthetics Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRM's), designed to provide erosion protection for the design life of a project. Applications such as roadway stabilization and repair, erosion control, and soil drainage and reinforcement, as well as hydraulic barriers composed primarily of man-made polymer sheets or spray applied systems are included. Also featured are standards on geosyntheetic clay liners.
