Test Method Title

Test Method for Tensile Properties of Geotextiles by the Wide-Width Strip Method

Reference Number

ASTM D4595

Material

Geotextile

Test Property

tensile strength, elongation, tensile modulus

Description of Test

An 8" wide specimen is gripped across its entire width in the clamps of a constant rate of extension (CRE) type tensile testing machine operated at a prescribed rate of extension applying a longitudinal force to the specimen until the specimen ruptures. Tensile strength, elongation, initial and secant modulus, and breaking toughness of the test specimen can be calculated from machine scales, dials, recording charts, or an interfaced computer.

Preferred Test Sample Size

3' x roll width

Number of Test Specimens

6 machine direction 6 cross machine direction

Test Specimen Size

12" x 8"

Keywords

wide-width, tensile, elongation, modulus
