Geotextile is a synthetic permeable textile material used to improve the soil characteristics.
It has the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect and drain when used in association with soils. Geotextiles are ideal materials for many infrastructure works such as roads, harbors , landfills, drainage structures, and other civil projects.
Geotextiles are made up of polymers such as polyester or polypropylene. They are divided into 3 categories on the basis of the way they are prepared : 1 Woven Fabric Geotextiles 2 Non-Woven Geotextiles 3 Knitted Geotextiles. Commonly found geotextiles are of the woven type and are manufactured by adopting the techniques which are similar to weaving usual clothing textiles.
This type has the characteristic appearance of two sets of parallel threads or yarns. The yarn running along the length is called warp and the one perpendicular is called weft. As shown in the figure below. Non-woven geotextiles are manufactured from either continuous filament yarn or short staple fiber. The bonding of fibers is done using thermal, chemical or mechanical techniques or a combination of techniques.
Geo-fibers obtained from mechanical interlocking or chemical or thermal bonding have a thickness of 0. Knitted geotextiles are manufactured by the process of interlocking a series of loops of yarn together.
All of the knitted geosynthetics are formed by using the knitting technique in conjunction with some other method of geosynthetics manufacture, such as weaving.
Apart from these three geotextiles, other geosynthetics used are geonets, geogrids, geo-cells, geomembranes, geocomposites, etc. The separation function of geotextile is majorly used in the construction of roads.
Geotextile prevents the intermixing of two adjacent soils. For example, by separating fine subgrade soil from the aggregates of the base course, the geotextile preserves the drainage and the strength characteristics of the aggregate material.
The equilibrium of geotextile-to-soil system that allows for adequate liquid flow with limited soil loss across the plane of the geotextile. Porosity and permeability are the major properties of geotextiles which involve infiltration action. A common application illustrating the filtration function is the use of a geotextile in a pavement edge drain, as shown in the figure above.
Introduction of geotextile in the soil increases the tensile strength of the soil the same amount steel does in concrete. The strength gain in soil due to the introduction of geotextile is by the following 3 mechanisms :. A layer of non-woven geotextile is impregnated in between existing and new asphalt layers. The geotextile absorbs asphalt to become a waterproofing membrane minimising vertical flow of water into the pavement structure.
The scope of geotextile in the engineering field is very vast. The application of geotextile is given under the heading of the nature of work. Geotextiles are widely used in the construction of the road. It reinforces the soil by adding tensile strength to it. It is used as a rapid de-watering layer in the roadbed, the geotextiles need to preserve its permeability without losing its separating functions.
The woven fabrics or the non-woven ones are used to separate the soil from the sub-soil without impeding the groundwater circulation where the ground is unstable. Enveloping individual layers with fabric prevents the material from wandering off sideways due to shocks and vibrations from running trains. It is used for mud control. For the improvement of muddy paths and trails those used by cattle or light traffic, nonwoven fabrics are used and are folded by overlapping to include the pipe or a mass of grit.
The use of geotextiles to filter the soil and a more or less single size granular material to transport water is increasingly seen as a technically and commercially viable alternative to the conventional systems.
Geotextiles perform the filtering mechanism for drainages in earth dams, in roads and highways, in reservoirs, behind retaining walls, deep drainage trenches, and agriculture.
Geotextiles protect river banks from erosion due to currents or lapping. When used in conjunction with natural or artificial enrockments, they act as a filter.

Geosynthetics are synthetic products used to stabilize terrain. They are generally polymeric products used to solve civil engineering problems. This includes eight main product categories: geotextiles , geogrids , geonets , geomembranes , geosynthetic clay liners , geofoam , geocells and geocomposites. The polymeric nature of the products makes them suitable for use in the ground where high levels of durability are required. They can also be used in exposed applications.
Textile materials and technologies in the field of technical textiles are key innovations that could help to address the extremely diverse societal challenges. The nature of fibers polyester [PES], polypropylene [PP], viscose, cotton, carbon, glass, aramide, etc. In the construction industry, geotextiles perform several functions. Thus, textiles used in earthworks with an aim to improve ground properties are called geotextiles. Based on the standard SIST EN , the functions of geotextiles from the civil engineering point of view are as follows: - Separation: when we want to prevent the mixing of two different geomaterials.

Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect or drain. As the use of geotextile fabrics has expanded there has been the introduction of geotextile composites and the development of products such as geogrids and meshes As the use of geotextile fabrics has expanded there has been the introduction of geotextile composites and the development of products such as geogrids and meshes. Overall these materials are referred to as geotextiles and related products.
Abstract This paper focuses on geosynthetics products, their applications and design methodologies required for reinforcing soil and environmental protection work. From decades Geosynthetics are widely used construction materials for geotechnical and environmental applications in most parts of the world. Because they constitute manufactured materials, new products and applications are developed on a routine basis to provide solutions to routine and critical problems alike.

Я хочу открыть этот проклятый файл и ознакомиться с созданной Танкадо программой. Сьюзан была столь же любопытна, как и ее шеф, но чутье подсказывало ей, что расшифровка алгоритма Цифровой крепости неразумна, какой бы интерес это ни представляло. В данный момент эта чертова программа надежно зашифрована и абсолютно безопасна.
Это был краеугольный камень метода грубой силы. Именно этим принципом вдохновлялся Стратмор, приступая к созданию ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Он недвусмысленно гласит, что если компьютер переберет достаточное количество ключей, то есть математическая гарантия, что он найдет правильный.
