This course will show how to conduct the various types of tests used for geosynthetic testing. Each experiment of geosynthetic testing is presented with brief introduction covering the important details of the experiment, the theory and the purpose for which it is to be performed, followed by the detailed explanation of apparatus required, procedure and specimen calculations. These should enable students to compute the results of experiments very easily.
