Geosynthetics Function Symbols

Geosynthetic products play an integral role in the majority of building, civil and marine engineering projects.
Geosynthetics Uses

The range of applications and uses is vast, however the functions of geosynthetics can be broken down into 6 broad categories. Our function symbols have been developed to provide a quick guide to the use of each geosynthetic product group.
Separation Protection
Separation Protection
The use of a geotextile to prevent the intermixing of dissimilar soil layers. The use of a geosynthetic material as a stress reduction layer to prevent or reduce damage to an adjacent surface or layer.
Erosion Control Filtration
Erosion Control Filtration
The use of a geosynthetic material to prevent the loss of soil particles from water erosion. The use of a geotextile to allow the passage of fluids (most commonly water) while preventing the uncontrolled passage of soil particles.
Reinforcement Drainage
Reinforcement Drainage
The use of the tensile properties of a geosynthetic material to resist stresses or contain deformations in soil structures. The use of a geosynthetic layer to collect and transport fluids within its thickness.
