Lab Assignment Geosynthetics are being considered for use at a large site development project in many different applications. Some of them are listed below. Erosion control during excavation and grading of the site, after the vegetation has been stripped from the site. Erosion control at the end of the project when grading has been completed and before vegetation has been established. As a liner for a storm water retention pond. As filters for the dam that will be built to form the retention pond. To protect the dam face and other steep slopes that may erode over time. As slope reinforcement so the embankments can be built on a steeper slope.

Unformatted text preview: As reinforcement for segmental retaining walls. Please write a memo that includes a review of the suitable applications of geosynthetics. The memo should be written to explain the suitable applications of geosynthetics to a project engineer who has no experience with geosynthetics but has heard about them. Therefore, you should include a brief description of the different types of geosynthetics and their functions, as well as recommendations of what types of geosynthetics could be used in the above applications. A handout that summarizes the different types of geosynthetics and their applications will be distributed in lab. 122...
