Abstract

The degradation resulting from transport operations, handling and placement can compromise the functions performed by geosynthetics and it’s short and long term mechanical behaviour. The test program consisted in performing damage during installation laboratory tests in different geocomposites to assessment its effects on mechanical and hydraulic properties of these materials. The results showed considerable strength losses for the reinforcement geocomposites. For the drainage geocomposites the results suggest that besides the cuts the clogging of geotextiles’ pores may to occur during installation of geosynthetics.
