Application of Geo Textiles in Erosion Control – A Review Paper

Author : M.Sampath Kumar 1 Dr.M.V.S. Sreedhar 2

Date of Publication :1st August 2022

Abstract: Geo textiles are a possible great alternative before vegetation establishes itself, and provides immediate control on soil erosion on different types of slopes. In this study, different geo textiles have been used for better erosion control over different soils. Different structurally modified geomeshes are tested for runoff erosion control, culmination discharge over different types of soils at different slope angles and at different rainfall intensities. Though these geo textile products are in use since a long time, the selection of product is mostly based on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Hence, there is a great necessity to understand the mechanics involved and to develop a comprehensive design methodology. In line with this, in the present study a review was done about the research takes place so far across the world.
