what is meant by geosyntahtic system

Answer / viwa1397

Geosynthetics is the term used to describe a range of
generally polymeric products used to solve civil
engineering problems. The term is generally regarded to
encompass eight main product categories: geotextiles,
geogrids, geonets, geomembranes, geosynthetic clay liners,
geofoam, geocells (cellular confinement) and geocomposites.
The polymeric nature of the products makes them suitable
for use in the ground where high levels of durability are
required. Properly formulated, however, they can also be
used in exposed applications. Geosynthetics are available
in a wide range of forms and materials, each to suit a
slightly different end use. These products have a wide
range of applications and are currently used in many civil,
geotechnical, transportation, geoenvironmental, hydraulic,
and private development applications including roads,
airfields, railroads, embankments, retaining structures,
reservoirs, canals, dams, erosion control, sediment
control, landfill liners, landfill covers, mining,
aquaculture and agriculture.
