Based on the shape of the opening , the Geotextile can be divided into :
1. Geotextile Woven
Geotextile Woven is a type of woven geotextile. The basic ingredients are usually Polypropilene (PP).
To facilitate visualization, this Geotextile Woven is similar to a sack of rice (not from jute) but black.
The function of Geotextile Woven is as a stabilizing material for subgrade (especially soft subgrade), because this type of Geotextile has higher tensile strength compared to Non Woven Geotextile (about 2 times the same gramasi or weight per m2).
Geotextile Woven relies on tensile strength, so it does not reduce the occurrence of local decline (differential settlement) due to soft or ugly subgrade.
2. Geotextile Non-Woven
The function of Geotextile NonWoven is :
