Designing with Geosynthetics is the definitive text book for the geotechnical designer and specification writer, yet is simplistic enough for someone with no previous experience with Geosynthetics. The design by function approach is a common-sense straigh-forward concept that helps the reader understand the functionality of these plastic materials within a soil matrix/5(6). Designing with Geosynthetics is the definitive text book for the geotechnical designer and specification writer, yet is simplistic enough for someone with no previous experience with Geosynthetics. The design by function approach is a common-sense straigh-forward concept that helps the reader understand the functionality of these plastic materials /5(6). Students, teachers and practitioners now have access to Dr. Koerner's Geosynthetics Design Manual. Keep in mind there are 2 volumes. This volume covers geomembranes for the most part. It is important to get volume 1 for an equally astounding low ing with Geosynthetics - 6th Edition Vol. /5(24). Designing with Geosynthetics, Third Edition includes theory and techniques of chemical analysis for identification of polymer types and properties; introduces chemical analysis from an engineer's perspective to give readers an understandable and useful foundation; devotes an entire chapter to geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs), which includes the most recent subset of geosynthetics .
Designing with Geosynthetics. Appropriate for upper-level undergraduate courses in departments of Civil Engineering and Materials/Polymers Engineering. Emphasizing design-by-function, this book examines various types of geosynthetics, including geotextiles, geogrids, geonets, geomembranes, geopipes, and geocomposites/5. The 6 th Edition of the widely used professional/academic book “Designing with Geosynthetics” by Robert M. Koerner was published in January The book’s structure follows previous editions but new material has been added addressing sustainability, failure situations, along with updated text and references.

Great explanation of the geosynthetics manufacturing, testing, properties, standards, design, installation and quality control. Can be used as a college textbook or a resource for industry professionals. The style of writing makes for a good reading experience. Unfortunately the Kindle version does not do a good job /5(28). Geosynthetic materials have entered the mainstream in the professional arena and are no longer considered new construction material. Professionals need to keep up with the nuances of how geosynthetics work. Emphasizes design by function; overviews all types of geosynthetics, with stand-alone units on particular : Xlibris Corporation. Robert M. Koerner is a professional engineer, Professor of Civil Engineering at Drexel University and the director of the Geosynthetic Research Institute in Philadelphia. Koerner wrote Designing with Geosynthetics, which has been called the most helpful technical resource on . Designing with Geosynthetics, Vol. 1 book.
