The resistance moment and the numbers of geotextiles required are examined.
Geotextiles are a vital component of civil engineering and agricultural enhancement applications all over the world.
The company has established itself as a frontrunner in providing non-woven geotextiles for countless projects across the region, especially in Saudi Arabia.

The company manufactures needlepunched, nonwoven polyester geotextiles - A1 and A1 XL series; needlepunched nonwoven polypropylene geotextiles - Alyaf XP range; thermally bonded, needlepunched nonwoven polypropylene geotextiles - Alyaf XS range; a polyester thermally set range engineered for use in cold applied liquid waterproofing systems - Alyaf TS range; paving fabrics made from 100 per cent polyester fibre - Alyaf TS range; a three-dimensional cellular confinement system engineered to provide erosion protection on slopes - ALFWEB, and nonwoven polyester mats engineered specifically for the production of bituminous waterproofing membranes.
Geotextiles will remain the largest product segment, accounting for 69 percent of total area demand in 2017.
During the China Geotextiles Composite Materials Summit 2011 held in Lingxian, Shandong, it was announced that in 2010, China's output value of geotextiles reached 405,000 tonnes, and during the next five years, it is anticipated to maintain a double-digit growth annually, reaching 730,000 tons by 2015.
Among his topics are natural polymers, applying geo-synthetics to control flooding and water erosion, the stability of an embankment on soft soil, designing limited life geotextiles, the time-dependent behavior of reinforced and unreinforced embankment on soft soil, applying applications of natural polymer fibers as sustainable geotextiles, and applying them during evacuation and relief operations.
Manipulating root penetration through these separation geotextiles could potentially play a large role in bioretention system function and design, especially since the potentially saturated soils beneath detention reservoirs may have reduced soil strength, increasing opportunities for root growth by some species," she added.
Examples of the items included ready-mix asphalt, quick-setting concrete, geotextiles, gabions, and HESCO barriers.
There are various types of geosynthetics such as geotextiles (GT), geogrids (GG), geomembranes (GM), geonets (GN), geocomposites (GC), geosynthetic clay liners (GCL), geopipes (GP), geofoam (GF), geotubes, geocells, etc.
