Table 2. Wide width Tensile Properties of developed Pavement Overlay Geotextiles Table 5. It can be seen that both the fabrics have high puncture resistance. However, the high strength woven fabric is found to have a very high resistance, 6. Trapezoid tear strength Tear strength of pavement overlay fabrics is equally important as wide width and grab properties of both the samples. Both the samples are found strength of these fabrics. As depicted in Table 6, both the fabrics are found to be acceptable in terms of tear to be acceptable as per the standard pavement overlay + strength, the woven variety, being high in tensile strength has samples. It can be seen that as compared to the woven fabrics, the nonwovens fabric is relatively lower in strength ‘and high in elongation. A standard pavement overiay fabric has an acceptable level of tensile strength along with higher elongation is most desirable for the application. This makes both the fabrics suitable for the application, Standard acceptable values for Pavement overlay fabrics: Wide width tensile strength : 4.5 kNim Wide width elongation >50% 3. Grab tensile strength ‘The grab strength of the fabrics was tested as per standard ASTM D-4632, The fabrics developed have found the results ‘as shown in Table 3. It can be seen that both the fabrics have acceptable level of grab strength, ie. 400 N. The woven sample $2 has much higher grab strength by virtue of its construction. It is expected to show better overlay perfor- mance Table 3. Grab Tensile Properties of developed Pavement Overlay Geotextiles 4. Bursting strength The bursting property of the developed samples has been evaluated as per ASTM D - 3786. As seen in Table 4, both the fabrics are found to be satisfactory as far as the bursting property is concerned. The woven fabric however, has very high bursting strength. Table 4, Bursting strength of developed Pavement Overlay Geotextiles 5. Puncture resistance ‘The puncture resistance of the fabrics was evaluated as per ASTM D - 4833. The results of the same are shown in the FEED sere ress int ay 207 equally high tear strength too. Table 5. Puncture resistance of developed Pavement Overlay Geotextiles Table 6.

Apparent opening size (AOS) The permittivity of the pavement overlay fabrics is adjudged from the Apparent Opening Size of the fabrics. The evalua- tion of the property was done as per ASTM D-4751. The results of the same have been shown in Table 7 for both the samples developed. The AOS values for the nonwovens fab- fies are found to be acceptable. However, the woven fabrics failed to yield any value for the same due to the varying permitivty level of the fabrics. Table 7. AOS Properties of developed Pavement Overlay Geotextiles 8. Water permitivity The hydraulic permittivity of the pavement overlay samples was evaluated from their water permittivity. The test was carried out as per ASTM D - 4491. The results have been summarised in Table 8. As in case of AOS, the water permit- tivity could give acceptable value established only for the Nonwoven sample. The woven sample failed in this regard, ‘Table 8. Water Permittivity Characteristics of developed Pavement Overlay Geotextiles
