This issue of Current Topics in Transport includes approximately 70 abstracts of some of the published literature (reports, conference papers, books and journal articles) on the design, testing and applications of synthetic and natural geotextiles and geomembranes. Abstracts are included on a wide range of highway and retaining wall construction applications, including subgrade reinforcement and separation, erosion control, drainage and filtration and the prevention of reflective cracking. These items have been selected from the material added to the Transport Research Laboratory's Library Database between 1993 and 1996. Much of the relevant English language literature from the UK, USA, Australia and Europe is included; some of the non-UK literature is included courtesy of the OECD International Road Research Documentation (IRRD) database. The previous edition of this title, Current Topic 37, covers articles between 1991 and 1993.
