INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE APPLICATION OF ENGINEERING FABRICS IN THE FIELD OF GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

INTERNATIONALE KONFERENZ ANWENDUNG VON TECHNISCHEN TEXTILIEN IN DER GEOTECHNIK

AT AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN APRIL 1977 IN PARIS, REPRESENTATIVES OF 29 COUNTRIES REPORTED ON THE USE OF ENGINEERING FABRICS IN CONSTRUCTION WORKS: FOUNDATIONS, ROAD CONSTRUCTION, EARTHWORKS ETC. WHEN COMPARING THE RESULTS THERE IS A NEED TO PRODUCE UNIFORM TERMINOLOGY, EXPERIMENTAL METHODS, TESTING AND MEASUREMENTS. THE FOLLOWING PROBLEM AREAS WERE DISCUSSED: NONWOVEN MATERIAL AT THE BOUNDARY LAYER OF SUBSOIL AND SUPERIMPOSED MATERIAL FOR ROADS AND RAILWAY EMBANKMENTS AND FILLS, MULTI-LAYERED SOIL CONSTRUCTION WITH NONWOVEN MATERIAL, MECHANISM OF THE INTERRELATION OF SOIL AND NONWOVEN MATERIAL, DRAINAGE, SOIL CONSOLIDATION, TESTING AND MATERIAL PROPERTIES. A SUMMARY OF THE POSSIBLE TEST METHODS FOR TENSILE STRENGTH, DENTING OR PENETRATION, RESPECTIVELY, FILTER ACTION, CREEP BEHAVIOUR, WEAR, COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION AND THERMAL STABILITY, INCLUDES INFORMATION ON WHERE DESCRIPTIONS ON THE METHODS CAN BE FOUND AND WHETHER STANDARDISATION HAS ALREADY BEEN INTRODUCED.
