To properly understand and assess the long-term behaviour of geosynthetic materials it is necessary to investigate the various types of possible degradation mechanims. This includes both chemical and mechanical behaviour, and sometimes even their interactions with one another. Clearly, chemical degradation of geosynthetics depends on the polymer type. For example, polyolefins are vulnerable to oxidation; polyesters are susceptible to hydrolysis; and plasticizers can leach from polyvinyl… 

Durability of a polypropylene woven geotextile under climatic and chemical agents

The durability of geosynthetics against degradation agents is a relevant issue to be considered for the analysis of their life cycle and relevance to their application. Sunlight, high temperatures,

Geotextiles and Geomembranes

This study evaluates the long-term performance of two types of geotextiles that were used for 18 years in drainage trenches to stabilize slopes in the French Alps. The flow rate analysis of each

Geotextiles—A Versatile Tool for Environmental Sensitive Applications in Geotechnical Engineering

Geotextiles, a group of high-performance materials, have grown during the last decades into needful auxiliaries when it comes to infrastructure, soil, construction, agriculture and environmental

INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR SOIL MECHANICS AND GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

The long term performance of smooth geomembranes has been studied extensively in various geoenvironmental applications. However, the long term performance of textured geomembranes has never been

Experimental Study on Long-term Characteristics of Sprayable Waterproofing Membrane

The sprayable waterproofing membrane is a recently introduced material in the civil engineering field, and is a material that sprays and attaches a single phase or two phase powder or liquid material

The effects of weathering exposure on the physical, mechanical, and thermal properties of high-density polyethylene and poly (vinyl chloride)

This paper presents results describing the physical, mechanical, and thermal properties (melt flow index - MFI and oxidative induction time - OIT) of high density polyethylene and poly (vinyl

Environmental Protection with HDPE Geomembranes in Mining Facility Constructions

The present work evaluated two high-density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembranes exhumed from mining facility constructions in Brazil. The MIN sample was exhumed from a pond for water use for the iron

Interface behaviour and stability of geocomposite drain/soil systems

Landfill covers are designed as impermeable caps on top of waste containment facilities after the completion of landfill operations. Geocomposite drain (GD) materials consist of a geonet or geospacer

Antioxidant depletion lifetime in high density polyethylene geomembranes

A major issue in the use of geomembranes for waste containment is an estimate of the material’s durability (i.e., its lifetime) to various aging phenomena. For a high density polyethylene

COMPARISON OF DIFFERENT LONG TERM REDUCTION FACTORS FOR GEOSYNTHETIC REINFORCING MATERIALS

One hundred fourteen year (10h power 6) reduction factors for creep-rupture and for 5% or 10% allowable strain have been determined for polyvinylalcohol, aromatic polyamide, polyamide,

TESTING PROTOCOLS FOR OXIDATION AND HYDROLYSIS OF GEOSYNTHETICS

This report presents the development and verification of testing protocols and interpretations necessary to determine the oxidative durability of polyolefin geosynthetics and hydrolysis durability of

COMPARISON BETWEEN STEPPED ISOTHERMAL METHOD AND LONG-TERM CREEP TESTS ON GEOSYNTHETICS

The results of long-term creep tests in air, lasting for up to 14 years, on polypropylene, polyethylene and polyester reinforcing geotextiles are compared with the predictions from accelerated tests

Assessment of lifetime of hot-water polyethylene pipes based on oxidation induction time data

A method is presented for assessment of lifetime of polyethylene pipes undergoing thermal oxidation (Stage III failure) based on oxidation induction time (OIT) data obtained by DSC. The method

Depletion of Antioxidants from an HDPE Geomembrane in a Composite Liner

The results of two series of accelerated aging tests are reported. Both series of tests were conducted at temperatures of 85, 70, 55, and 26°C over a period of about 3 years . In the simulated liner
