ABOUT JOURNALGeosynthetics are now being increasingly used the world over for every conceivable applicationin civil engineering, namely, construction of dam embankments, canals, approach roads, runways,railway embankments, retaining walls, slope protection works, drainage works, river training works,seepage control, etc. due to their inherent qualities. Its use in India though is picking up, is not anywhere close to recognitions. This is due to limited awareness of the utilities of this material anddevelopments having take place in its use.The aim of the journal is to provide latest information in regard to developments taking place in therelevant field of geosynthetics so as to improve communication and understanding regarding suchproducts, among the designers, manufacturers and users and especially between the textile andcivil engineering communities.EDITORIAL BOARDDr. K.
