GEOTEC | What is Geosynthetics ?
Geosynthetics are polymeric materials that are used in interaction with other geotechnical substances and from soil-polymer system that has enhanced properties to be used as construction material. Geosynthetics can be used to provide the following main functions:
Oil and Gas industry,Waste management,environmental protection sector,dams,Canals,Mining,Road construction,Agriculture,Coastal structures

Geosynthetics Definition

Geosynthetics are polymeric materials that are used in interaction with other geotechnical substances and from soil-polymer system that has enhanced properties to be used as construction material. Geosynthetics can be used to provide the following main functions:

  • Soil reinforcement: material used as a tensile element inside soil to build soil filled structures.
  • Sealing: to act as barrier and block the flow of water or gaseous material
  • Separation and filtration: to stop two adjacent soil layers to be mixed in case of repetitive load exertion or ground water flow through these layers.
  • Protection: to resist point load puncture forces that can damage materials and surfaces.

  • Separation and filtration: to stop two adjacent soil layers to be mixed in case of repetitive load exertion or ground water flow through these layers.
  • Protection: to resist point load puncture forces that can damage materials and surfaces.
  • Drainage: to convey water through a predesign rout and discharge it out of a structure to convey water through a predesign rout and discharge it out of a structure

Geosynthetics Horizon

With above mentioned functions, they could replace many conventional construction material and have been quite a phenomenon in construction industry in recent years. Day by day as infrastructures are growing rapidly around the world, application of these materials had been increasing in past 10 years.
