This book presents the state of the art of geosynthetics to rationally confidently and economically use geosynthetics in civil engineering structures. It provides an update on geotechnical engineering practice with geosynthetics through contributions from around the world sharing their rich experiences along with the current Indian scenario. It deals in depth about the wide spectrum of applications of geosynthetics in reinforced soil retaining structures and slopes embankments on soft soils pavements landfills canal lining systems drainage of soft soils and ground improvement and coastal and water way protection. Topics on geosynthetic product development and natural fibre geotextiles with jute and coir are dealt with in considerable detail. Emerging issues of standards and specifications test house and R & D needs are focussed. With its wide coverage the book would serve as an important source of information on the new horizons in the emerging area of geosynthetics to polymer techn. Bookseller Inventory #
