There are many difference between woven geotextile and non woven geotextiles.
What is geotextile do and what is geotextile functions?
The use of geotextiles’ tensile properties to improve the mechanical properties of the soil layer.
Usually GTM woven geotextile has larger tensile strength so it is widely used for reinforcement.
Also we can use thick non woven geotextile as reinforment fabric.
Used in embankment, dam, road, railway, airports and other facilities; wet areas, parking and cold permafrost zone.
GTM Nonwoven Geotextiles placed between two different materials can work as protection layer.
Use in roadbed construction of roads and railways.
Thick nonwoven geotextile,geonet,or drainage core,drainage board can collect and transport flood and
groundwater to the drainage pipe.
Underground drains, retaining walls and dam in the drainage system, agricultural irrigation system and so on.
Geotextile has the ability to filtration which means geotextile allow fluid flow through the geotextile fabric
plane but prevent the movement of soil particles.
Used in roadbed drainage,dam waterproof and mine dam construction.
Geotextile has the ability to keep 2 different materials apart.Without Separation geotextile,the 2 layer will
mixed together.For example,the crushed gravel will mixed in to soft subbase.The Separation geotextile
can be woven geotextile or nonwoven geotextile.
Used in road construction.
The composite of geotextile and geomembrane can form compound geomembrane which is a good
waterproof geosynthetics.Also when geotextiles used in road construction,it mixed withe the bituman.
It will form a waterproof layer to prevent water come into the road base.
7. Erosion Control
Geo textile is anchored to the slope to hold the soil and seed in-place until the seeds germinate and
vegetative cover is established.
Used in coast, river bank protection and soil erosion control.
