AASHTO M288 – Standard Specification for Geosynthetic Specification for Highway Applications


This is a materials specification covering geosynthetics for use in subsurface drainage, separation, stabilization, erosion control, temporary silt fence, paving, and soil (walls and slopes). This is a material purchasing specification and design review of use is recommended. This specification sets forth a set of physical, mechanical, and endurance properties that must be met or exceeded by the geosynthetic being manufactured. In the context of quality systems and management, this specification represents a manufacturing quality control (MQC) document. However, its general use is essentially as a recommended design document.
