Geosynthetics - Wide-width tensile test (ISO/FDIS 10319:2024); German version FprEN ISO 10319:2024


This document describes an index test method for the determination of the tensile properties of geosynthetics (polymeric, glass and metallic), using a wide-width strip. This document is applicable to most geosynthetics, including woven geotextiles, nonwoven geotextiles, geocomposites, knitted geotextiles, geonets, geomats and metallic products. It is also applicable to geogrids and similar open-structure geotextiles, but specimen dimensions might need to be altered. It is not applicable to polymeric or bituminous geosynthetic barriers, but it is applicable to clay geosynthetic barriers. This document specifies a tensile test method that covers the measurement of tensile force - elongation characteristics and includes procedures for the calculation of secant stiffness, maximum load per unit width and strain at maximum force. Singular points on the tensile force-extension curve are also indicated. Procedures for measuring the tensile properties of both conditioned and wet specimens are included in this document.
