ASTM D7748/D7748M-14(2021)

Standard Test Method for Flexural Rigidity of Geogrids, Geotextiles, and Related Products

1.1This test method covers the measurement of stiffness properties of geogrids, geotextiles, and geogrid-geotextile composites, all of which are referred to as geosynthetics within this test method. Bending length is measured and flexural rigidity is calculated through use of the cantilever test procedure.

1.1.1This test method employs the principle of cantilever bending of the geosynthetic under its own mass.

1.2This test method applies to geogrids, geotextiles, and geogrid-geotextile composites.

1.3This test method is for manufacturing quality control purposes only, to ensure uniformity and consistency of flexural rigidity for a specific product from roll to roll and lot to lot.

1.4The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.

1.5This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
