Standard Test Method for Strength of Sewn or Bonded Seams of Geotextiles


1.1 This test method covers the seam strength of geotextiles. The primary distinction of this test method for evaluating seam strength is the width of the specimen. This is in contrast to the more narrow specimen width used in the tensile grab strength test discussed in Test Method D 1683.

1.2 This test method will provide data to indicate the seam strength which can be achieved for each particular geotextile and seam assembly construction.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are provided for information only.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
