  • Rainstore3 Installation Instructions For Stormwater Drainage Detention & Retention with Geotextile Fabric

    This document describes how to properly install the Rainstore3 water storage system with geotextile fabric for stormwater drainage detention and retention. Detention allows for short-term storage and release of storm water through outlet pipes. Nearby water treatment plants may have a limited capacity for handling storm water and thus, stormwater needs to be temporarily detained on site. ...

  • Pore Size Distribution of Nonwoven Geotextiles

    The applicability of the mercury intrusion technique to determine the pore size distribution (PSD) of geotextiles was evaluated. The method was found to be simple and rapid, and an ASTM standard for soils and rocks already exists (ASTM Test Method for Determination of the Pore Volume and Pore Volume Distribution of Soil and Rock by Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry [D 4404]). The PSD determined from ...

  • Geotex® Geotextiles: A Life Cycle Costing Approach to Roads

    Subgrade contamination is the leading cause of failure in both pavements and unpaved roads. Aggregate layers used to support the traffic or pavement typically rests on a subgrade of sand, silt or clay. Without permanent separation, two factors will undoubtedly lead to the contamination of the aggregate layers—fine-grained soils will enter into the voids of the aggregate, preventing it from ...

  • Using Coir Geotextiles for soil erosion control

    One of the most effective and yet natural soil erosion prevention techniques is the use of Coir Geotextiles fabrics ( Woven Geotextiles). Used extensively to prevent environmental degradation Geotextiles have no synthetic material but is instead made out of an organic fiber, coir, which is extracted from the husk of a coconut. It is strong, durable, water proof and is one of the few natural ...

  • Laboratory Properties of a Soft Marine Clay Reinforced with Woven and Nonwoven Geotextiles

    This paper is concerned with the laboratory properties of a geotextile-reinforced compacted soft marine deposit with respect to its compaction, compressive strength, and time-dependent settlement characteristics. Two different geotextiles, namely, Polyfelt TS-500 (nonwoven) and Cardon SG PP 150 (woven) have been investigated. It was observed from the experimental study that a nonwoven geotextile ...

  • Dewatering with Geotextile Bags - South Gippsland, Australia (Water Treatment) - Case Study

    A simple, cost effective new method of dewatering sludge is now available in Australia, writes Bill Kelly from CRS Industrial Water Treatment. The use of geotextilcs for containment and dewatering came about as a result of a major flood event in Holland in the 1950s. It prompted Dutch marine engineers to seek new methods and materials to build structures for coastal defences. The ...

  • Geotextile Gravel Pavers keep lake clean in Denver - Case Study

    Denver’s City Park is an iconic symbol of the Mile High City. The oft-photographed park is home to the city’s zoo and the Denver Nature and Science Museum, as well as sports and recreational areas. In 2014, the asphalt parking lot for the Denver Pavilion inside the park was scheduled to be resurfaced. The city, with the help of StudioCPG, a landscape architecture and planning firm, ...

  • Geotex® 200ST Fabric brings smooth travel to remote road case study

    Willow Creek Road is a 36-mile stretch of un-paved road. Cattle ranchers, vacationers and hunters use the road, but during wet weather it became a muddy, hazardous mess. The soil is a silty clay, and earlier attempts to use just gravel were less than successful. In addition, the nearest gravel pit is a three-hour drive, so Valley County Road Superintendent Wayne Waarvik knew he had to do more ...

  • Great Island Tank 4 and bund refurbishment - case study

    Lining works to refurbish the existing tank farm secondary containment bund and HFO Tank 4 are ongoing at Great Island CCGT project. Lining Tech are contracted in to Balfour Beatty Ireland on this design and build project for the client Tank 4 Works Installation of 1,140m2 of 1mm HDPE leak detection liner to the floor of HFO tank 4 Fabrication and installation ...

  • TenCate Recommends Alternative Testing Method to More Accurately Measure the Relative “Openness” of Textile - Case Study

    The Capillary Flow Pore Size Test provides a more precise representation of the openness of all pore sizes within a fabric. Geotube marine technology has protected shorelines, rebuilt beaches, and reclaimed land from the sea for more than 45 years. Geotube containment technology is a proven, cost-effective method for a variety of shoreline protection and marine construction ...

  • Care and Handling of Advanced Enviro - Septic ™ Pipe

    Advanced Enviro-Septic™ (AES) is made entirely of durable, non-biodegradable plastic and geotextile fabrics, which enables the pipes to be lightweight and flexible for ease of transport and installation. This also extends system life, since there is nothing to break down or wear out once the system is properly installed. Although the AES is lightweight, the pipe is designed to withstand H20 ...

  • Comparison of Putting Greens Constructed with AirField Systems and USGA Design

    Comparison of Putting Greens Constructed with AirField Systems and USGA Design. Airfield Systems offers an alternative to the standard USGA putting green design. Their design utilizes a highly porous, I-inch deep plastic grid (AirDrain, Figure 1) in place of a 4-inch deep gravel layer. As with gravel, AirDrain allows rapid lateral movement of excess water to drains and thus ...

  • Carlton memorial reserve roadway and parking, Sarasota County, Florida

    Engineers Bishop and Associates required that the roadway and parking lot at T. Mabry Carlton, Jr. Memorial Reserve serve a dual function. The system was required to support loads over poor soils and also function as a stormwater retention system, storing the first one inch of rainfall. The retention system consisted of 150 mm (6 in) depth Geoweb sections and #57 stone infill. Seven inches of #57 ...

  • Geotex® 4x4 used in Missouri slope failure repair project case study

    In 1993, flooding in an adjacent stream caused a slope failure along a 300 foot section of Old Highway 100 in Franklin County, Missouri. Many attempts were made over the years to stabilize the slope and roadway, and none were successful. Flooding caused the slope that supported the highway to give way and become hazardous. A porous concrete slope protection facing was used to cover approximately ...

  • Can we reposition the preferred geological conditions necessary for an infil

    The quantity and quality of feed water for desalting is critical for efficient operation of a desalination plant. This paper considers a synthetic permeable system designed to take advantages of the advances in directional drilling as well as incorporate the use of geotextile fabrics to transfer the preferred infiltration characteristics to any coastal site. The filtered seawater collection ...


  • Geotex® 801 Soil helps tame road through the wilderness case study

    The National Wild Turkey Federation has over 800,000 members that are involved with maintaining camps and grounds across the United States. This requires traversing un-paved roads in order to gain access to remote areas, while complying with wildlife agencies rules and regulations. This particular hunting ground posed significant challenges. The best solution to the problem of soft soils and a ...
