Geosynthetics in civil engineering

Building a strong foundation in the fundamentals of geosynthesis, Geosynthetics for Civil Engineering discusses the design and durability of geosynthetics together with their material properties and the international standards governing their use. The book uses this platform to examine the various applications of geosynthetics in areas such as filters, separators, landfills, barriers, and foundation materials. The book concludes by reviewing methods of quality assurance and the service life of geosynthetics. Written by an international team of contributors, the book is an essential reference for all those involved in civil engineering.
