Manufacture of geotextiles started in India in 1985-86. Munish Tyagi takes an informed look at the road travelled since then. The landscape for geotextiles looks optimistic. It is marked by major players like Garware Wall Ropes, Technofab India, Kusumgar Projects and others including Strata GeoSystems and Skaps Industries. Some of these players have started providing design...
<em>In view of their special technical attributes, geo-technical textiles or geo-textiles are being increasingly used globally to address dangers to infrastructure caused by degradation and natural disasters. In India, too, geo-textiles are gaining greater acceptability, and with the government setting aside ?427 crore for use of geo-textiles between 2015 and 2019, prospects for the...
Different fibers from both natural as well as synthetic category can be used as geotextiles for various applications.
Geotextiles used in civil engineering applications are expected to carry out one or more functions over if given design life.
The term quality is somewhat intangible in its definition since it will mean different things to different people or even different companies involved in the manufacture or use of the textile item.
In geotechnical engineering applications, the method of joining of geotextiles by appropriate seam is one of the most important issues to deal with.
Textiles are no more limited for use as apparels clothing. With the rapid changes in the social economic structure of our society, textiles enhancing the quality of human life trough protection against various hazards as well as adverse environment. Technical textiles are the fastest growing area of textile consumption in
Of the various known methods of converting textile fibres into a fabric, production of needle-punched fabrics has gained immense popularity among the technical textiles market including geotextiles.
Invention of geotextiles has opened a new era in the growth and development of a variety of human activities related to construction of embankments for roads, railways and canals; bank protection works etc. and retrieval of areas by landfills. The word ‘geo’ implies the end use associated with improving properties and performance of engineering works founded in soil and the word...
The basic concept employed in making a nonwoven fabric is to transform fiber based materials into two-dimensional sheet structures with fabric-like properties such as flexibility, porosity, and mechanical integrity. The nonwoven manufacturing process can be basically consist of web laying and web bonding.
