Volume 1 -- Ch. 1. An Overview of Geosynthetics -- Ch. 2. Designing with Geotextiles -- Ch. 3. Designing with Geogrids -- Ch. 4. Designing with Geonets. Volume 2 -- Ch. 5. Designing with Geomembranes -- Ch. 6. Geosynthetic Clay Liners -- Ch. 7. Designing with Geofoam -- Ch. 8. Designing with Geocomposites. -- References -- Problems. Following the structure of previous editions, this Sixth Edition proceeds through eight individual chapters on geosynthetics, geotextiles, geogrids, geonets, geomembranes, geosynthetic clay liners, geofoam and geocomposites, respectively. All are polymeric materials used for myriad applications in feotechnological, environmental, transportation, hydraulic, and private development applications. the technology has become a worldwide enterprise with approximately 5 billion dollars in materials sales in the 35-years since first being introduced. In addition to describing and illustrating the various materials; the most important test methods and design examples are included as pertains to specific application areas. This latest edition differs from previous ones in that sustainability is addressed throughout, new material variations are presented, new applications are included and references are updated accordingly. Each chapter includes problems for which a solutions manual is available.
