This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number immediately 1 This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D35 on. Designation: D – 09Standard Test Method for TE D Tensile Properties of Geotextiles by the Wide-Width Strip. ASTM D measures the tensile properties of geotextiles using a wide-width strip specimen tensile method. ASTM D is applicable to most geotextiles.

On those fabrics, the contraction effect cited in 1. Centrally, draw two aztm running the full width of the specimen, accurately perpendicular to the length dimension and separated by mm 4 in. These clamps may be modi? Current edition approved Sept.

ASTM D is applicable to most geotextiles that include woven fabrics, nonwoven fabrics, layered fabrics, knit fabrics, and felts that are used for geotextile application. NOTE 2—For geotextiles which shrink excessively when wet, cut the test specimens for obtaining wet tensile strength longer in dimension than that for dry tensile strength.

ASTM D – Wide-Width Geotextiles

For secant modulus, state that portion of the force? A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Competent statistical assistance is recommended for the investigation of bias.

This is particularly the case for nonwoven geotextiles. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Special clamping adaptions may be necessary with strong geotextiles or geotextiles made from glass fibers to prevent them from slipping in the clamps or being damaged as a result of being gripped in the clamps. If a jaw break is caused by damage to the specimen by the jaws, then the results should be discarded.

The greater width of the specimen speci? The specimen length in the machine direction and cross-machine direction tests, respectively, must be parallel to the direction of application of force.

Some fabrics used d595 geotextile applications have a tendency to contract neck down under a force in the gage length area. In any event, the procedure described in Section 10 of this test method for obtaining wide-width strip tensile strength must be maintained. We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, environmental and humidity chambers, furnaces, baths and custom solutions for unique applications.

The intersection point A9 is the zero elongation point from which elongation is measured. NOTE 3—It is recognized that in practice, geotextile materials are frequently not weighed to determine when moisture equilibrium has been reached. 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.

When strength is not necessarily a design consideration, an alternative test method may be used for acceptance testing. Calculate offset tensile modulus using Eq 6 See Fig. We are confident that we have what you are looking for. Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or asstm additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.

This intersection, point B, is the zero elongation point from which elongation is measured. Specimen clamping may be modified as required at the discretion of the individual laboratory, provided a representative tensile strength is obtained. In some cases, it may also be caused by a concentration of stress in the area adjacent to the jaws because they prevent the specimen from contracting in width as the force astmm applied.


Forces qstm to 50 kN 11, lbf Thickness of 0 – 30 mm 0 – 1. In addition, the center portion of the specimen can be gaged using LVDTs or mechanical gages. Determine the number of specimens as follows: The time of immersion must be sufficient to wet-out the specimens thoroughly, as indicated by no signi?

The test specimens should then be randomly assigned in equal numbers to each laboratory for testing. If, however, it is merely due to randomly distributed weak places, it is a perfectly legitimate result.

Measure the area bounded by the curve, the perpendicular and the elongation axis by means of an integrator or a planimeter, or cut out the area of the chart under the force?

Record and report the test results to three signi?

Test 2 Method D for the determination of the wide-width strip tensile properties of geotextiles may be used for the acceptance testing of commercial shipments of geotextiles but caution is advised since information about between-laboratory precision is incomplete Note 6.
