In the technical society, environmental safety through controlled technological advances has become increasingly more important. As a result, the need to study the long-term durability and resistance of geosynthetics in contact with hazardous waste has been evident for some time. For this purpose, a study to develop a technological base for geotextiles, geonets and pipes used in containment facilities was undertaken. Information gathered from literature government agencies, academic institutions and industry provided the necessary background for assessment. Geosynthetic materials, exposure media, mechanical and chemical test methods are reviewed. (Copyright (c) 1991 Elsevier Science Publishers.)
