Technical Specification [CURRENT]

DIN CEN/TS 14416; DIN SPEC 60007:2014-05
Geosynthetic barriers - Test method for determining the resistance to roots; German version CEN/TS 14416:2014

Title (German)

Geosynthetische Dichtungsbahnen - Prüfverfahren zur Bestimmung des Widerstandes gegen Wurzeln; Deutsche Fassung CEN/TS 14416:2014




This Technical Specification describes a laboratory procedure for the rapid testing of the resistance of polymeric, bituminous or clay geosynthetic barriers to root penetration. It is suitable for testing welded seams or other areas of potential weakness. A longer test that may be more suitable for testing the long-term resistance of geosynthetic barriers is described in EN 13948. The body responsible for this DIN CEN/TS is NA 106-01-11 AA "Geotextilien und Geokunststoffe; SpA zu CEN/TC 189 und ISO/TC 221" ("Geotextiles and geosynthetics; mirror committee to CEN/TC 189 and ISO/TC 221") at DIN.
