KEY BENEFIT: Still the only book on geosynthetics, this updated edition covers the latest materials and design techniques. Emphasizing design-by-function, it examines all types of geosynthetics, including geotextiles, geogrids, geonets, geomembranes, and geocomposites.

KEY TOPICS: Introducing theory and techniques of chemical analysis for identifying polymer types and properties, the book covers a wide range of applications, including geotextile wall design, geogrid wall design, geomembrane side slope design, and GCL hydraulic barrier design. The book also covers geosynthetic clay lines (GCLs) and devotes an entire chapter to geopipe. It introduces design, testing, and selection of geosynthetics on a generic, rather than product-specific basis. It also provides an updated Product Reference Guide (through the Industrial fabrics Association International). The fourth edition of Designing with Geosynthetics has been revised to include the most up-to-date information as well as new examples covering transportation and geotechnical applications.

MARKET: An essential reference on geosynthetics for all practicing engineers.
