Erosion is caused by the migration of fine soil of sea or river banks due to strong currents. This ultimately poses a great danger to installations located on the banks. This is one of the most common problems with granular soil. After dressing the eroded banks, EON GEOTEX which is resistant to alkaline and acidic attack – is laid and anchored. A boulder rip-rap is formed on the geotextile layer as a protective layer.
EON GEOTEX functions as a filter and permits water to pass through without allowing the migration of fine soil. Since EON GEOTEX is resistant to deterioration caused by UV exposure and has good tensile and hydraulic properties.
For the construction of reinforced earth walls, modern designers prefer vertical constructions, with side concrete facia to add aesthetic value. Apart from visual appeal, this design helps avoid litigation problems of land acquisition mainly in urban areas, where flyovers with service roads are designed to ease traffic congestions.
EON GEOTEX is widely used as a back filter behind the concrete facia. Several designers deem it a handy filter media to retail soil particles of backfill material in place, even as it allows the release of accumulated hydraulic pressure.
One of the major applications of EON GEOTEX is as a separator between the subsoil and the aggregate layer of the roads. This protects the aggregate layers from sinking into the subsoil. At the same time, it also allows excess pore water to pass through.
As a result, the life of roads under dynamic loading conditions improves considerably. Depending on the condition of the subsoil, designers may use single or multiple separators at intervals to improve road quality. This is used for both paved and unpaved roads.
For the disposal of solid waste and hazardous landfills, structures are designed with an impervious geomembrane layer along with geo-textile. EON GEOTEX protects the membrane from succumbing to construction stress, due to its high tear strength and puncture resistance.
EON GEOTEX is also used in the construction of ash-ponds, along with an impervious geomembrane layer, which keeps the membrane from puncturing. In the absence of this structure, there is a danger of groundwater contamination. This is because thermal power stations usually dispose fly of ashes in ash ponds.
