Geosynthetics (GSY) are construction products, at least one of whose components is made from a synthetic or natural polymer material, in the form of a sheet, a strip or a three-dimensional structure.
These products are employed in geotechnical applications, where they are installed appropriately in contact with the adjacent soil. The generic term geosynthetics comprises product groups such as geotextiles, geogrids, drainage mats, geosynthetic barriers and geosynthetic erosion control products. The functions of these products are separation, filtration, drainage, reinforcement, protection, barrier function and surface erosion control. In many fields of application, such as in landfill construction, geosynthetics take over the major barrier function. In this application, the long-term behaviour is to be proved for more than 100 years. Therefore appropriate tests and inspections are essential.
