Filtration

The geosynthetic acts similar to a sand filter by allowing water to move through the soil while retaining all upstream soil particles. For example, geotextiles are used to prevent soils from migrating into drainage aggregate or pipes while maintaining flow through the system. Geotextiles are also used below rip rap and other armour materials in coastal and river bank protection systems to prevent soil erosion.

Drainage

The geosynthetic acts as a drain to carry fluid flows through less permeable soils. For example, geotextiles are used to dissipate pore water pressures at the base of roadway embankments. For higher flows, geocomposite drains have been developed. These materials have been used as pavement edge drains, slope interceptor drains, and abutment and retaining wall drains.

Separation

The geosynthetic acts to separate two layers of soil that have different particle size distributions. For example, geotextiles are used to prevent road base materials from penetrating into soft underlying soft subgrade soils, thus maintaining design thickness and roadway integrity. Separators also help to prevent fine-grained subgrade soils from being pumped into permeable granular road bases.

Protection

Osoplas geosynthetics may have, among their main functions, the one to protect geomembrane or lining product in general.Preventing or limiting of local damage to a given element or material by the use of a geotextile or a geotextile-related product.

Reinforcement

Geosynthetic acts as a reinforcing element in combination with soil to produce a geotechnical system having better mechanical properties, strength and deformability, in comparison to unreinforced soil. For example, woven geotextiles and geogrids are used to transfer tensile strength to soil, to realize vertical or almost vertical slopes (retaining wall structures). Reinforcement geosynthetics enable to build embankments on soft soils and their banks steeper than would be possible with unreinforced soil. Geosynthetics are used to build engineering works in karst areas or even on top of landfill capping. For the latter application geosynthetics are used to absorb tensile forces on banks, on waterproofing or capping packages.

Barrier

The geosynthetic acts as a relatively impermeable barrier to fluids or gases. For example, geomembranes, thin film geotextile composites, geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) and field-coated geotextiles are used as fluid barriers to impede flow of liquid or gas. This function is also used in asphalt pavement overlays, encapsulation of swelling soils and waste containment.

Erosion Control

Erosion of slopes can be avoided very well with entangled mesh structures, particularly during vegetation, because the soil which is filled into the three-dimensional static structure of the randomly entangled mesh is securely held in place and relatively resistant to washing out.
