Lining, Geosynthetics, HDPE, LDPE, Polyolefin.


Lining of any water structure is prepared to reduce seepage losses from the structure. Geosynthetics are provided to prevent losses as a lining material in various forms. Geosynthetics are manmade woven materials like textile material. This paper gives an introduction of geosynthetics as a lining material, where some common types of lining material is not much effective. This paper reviews various types of geosynthetics materials and their properties and applications at various fields. Here, three basic types of Geomembranes are compared HDPE, LDPE AND Polyolefin.
