Foreword
This document (EN ISO 13426-1:2003) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 189 "Geosynthetics",
the secretariat of which is held by IBN, in collaboration with Technical Committee ISO/TC 221 "Geosynthetics".
This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or
by endorsement, at the latest by July 2003, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by
July 2003.
According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following
countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland,
France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal,
Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Introduction
Geocells are geotextile-related products composed of single strips interconnected in several possible ways
(extrusion, thermal bonding, gluing, hot melt, stitching, etc) to form a panel of adjacent cells, where generally the
contact between two elements occurs along lines or in specific points, and not uniformly on the whole surface.
These lines or points are referred to as "junctions".
A geocell junction may fail in four different ways:
1) by shear (see Figure 1): when failure is caused by a force parallel to the junction itself;
2) by peeling or delamination (see Figure 2): when failure is caused by a force, normal to the junction, which
separates the cells from each other at one edge of the junction;
3) by tensile stress (see Figure 3): when a force, normal to the junction, pulls away the two cells adjacent to the
junction;
4) by local overstressing (see e.g. Figure 4: geocells secured with pins) : when the fixation element locally
overstresses the junction, leading to a compression, shear or peel failure.
NOTE This can be considered as a performance property, in the same way as a tensile test on seams/joints.
It is therefore impossible to define one single testing method for measuring the junction strength of geocells. Hence
this standard includes the principles for testing the four failure mechanisms explained above. These principles
should be adapted to each single product. In order to avoid confusion about the interpretation of figures, reference
should be made to the exact test method in test reports and data sheets, e.g. EN ISO 13426-1, method A – shear
strength of internal structural junctions.
1 Scope
This standard describes index test methods for the determination of the strength of internal structural junctions of
geocells under different loading conditions.

Specifications
3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this European Standard, the following terms and definitions apply:
3.1
geocell
three-dimensional, permeable, polymeric (synthetic or natural) honeycomb or web structure made of strips linked in
a staggered pattern, used to hold soil particles, roots and small plants for erosion control and soil containment
applications in civil engineering
3.2
junction
point, line or area where two strips are connected to form the unit cells of a geocell structure
3.3
fastening system
system (staples, pegs, U-shaped bars, etc.) used to fix the geocells to the ground at single points
3.4
nominal cell size
length L (in machine direction) and width W (in cross-machine direction) of the cell when opened according to the
c c
specification
4 Principle
Specimens of geocells are tested in accordance with one or more of the following four test methods representing
different stress modes.
NOTE 1 It is possible that, for some products, not all four test methods can be applied.
NOTE 2 In order to perform the tests correctly, information about the nominal open cell sizes (L , W ) and the direction of
c c
installation of the geocells panels, e.g. with the machine direction down the slope or parallel to the contour lines, should be
provided.
