Geosynthetics - Method for determining the microbiological resistance by a soil burial test

This standard specifies a method for the determination of the microbiological resistance of geotextiles and geotextile-related products by a soil burial test. It does not specify for which products or in which applications the soil burial test is required. Further reference should be made to CR ISO 13434.

Geokunststoffe - Prüfverfahren zur Bestimmung der mikrobiologischen Beständigkeit durch einen Erdeingrabungsversuch

Dieses Dokument legt ein Verfahren zur Bestimmung der mikrobiologischen Beständigkeit von Geokunststoffen, einschließlich denen, die aus Naturfasern und biologisch abbaubaren Polymeren bestehen, durch einen Erdeingrabungsversuch fest.
ANMERKUNG   Erfahrungen und die Ausgrabung von Geokunststoffen, die sich in manchen Fällen über mehr als zwei Jahrzehnte als beständig erwiesen haben, zeigen, dass Geokunststoffe aus synthetischen Materialien im Allgemeinen gegenüber mikrobiologisch ausgelöstem Zerfall resistent sind. Es kann deshalb erwartet werden, dass die meisten der gegenwärtigen handelsüblichen Produkte den Erdeingrabungsversuch erfolgreich bestehen werden und dass es wahrscheinlich nicht notwendig ist, sie alle unabhängig von ihrer Funktion dieser Prüfung zu unterziehen. Wenn jedoch die Anforderungen an ausreichende Funktion der Geokunststoffe den Nachweis der mikrobiologischen Beständigkeit erfordern oder wenn sie aus neuentwickelten Polymeren hergestellt sind, deren Beständigkeit anzuzweifeln ist, kann der Erdeingrabungsversuch zusätzliche Informationen liefern.

Géosynthetics - Méthode pour la détermination de la résistance microbiologique par un essai d'enfouissement

Ce document présente une méthode de détermination de la résistance microbiologique des
géosynthétiques incluant ceux constitués de fibres naturelles et de polymères biodégradables par un
essai d'enfouissement dans le sol.
NOTE L'expérience sur des géosynthétiques extraits après un enfouissement, pouvant dans certains cas
dépasser 20 ans, a montré que les produits composés de matières plastiques sont en général résistants à une
dégradation microbienne amorcée. On peut par conséquent s'attendre à ce que la plupart des produits actuellement
disponibles sur le marché obtiennent un résultat positif à l'essai d'enfouissement ; il ne sera probablement pas
nécessaire de les soumettre tous, indépendamment de leur fonction à laquelle ils sont destinés, à cet essai.
Cependant, si les exigences relatives à un emploi adéquat des produits concernés nécessitent de démontrer leur
résistance microbiologique, ou, s'ils ont été fabriqués à partir de polymères récemment mis au point pour lesquels
la résistance microbiologique n'a pas été établie, il convient d'effectuer l'essai d'enfouissement.

1 Scope

This document specifies a method for the determination of the microbiological resistance of

geosynthetics including those of natural fibres and biodegradable polymers by a soil burial test.

NOTE Experience and exhumation of geosynthetics which had performed successfully, in some cases for

more than two decades, indicate that geosynthetics made out of synthetic materials are generally resistant against

microbial initiated decay. It can therefore be expected that most of these products commercially available at the

present time will pass the soil burial test successfully and it is probably not necessary to submit them all to this

test independent of their function. However, if the requirements for appropriate functioning of the geosynthetics

demand proof of microbiological resistance or if they are manufactured from newly developed polymers whose

resistance is in any doubt, the soil burial test can provide additional information.
