Looking to better understand the difference between the three classes for geotextiles. I understand per the M288-06 selection guide that the classes are broken out based upon the survivability of the geotextiles, but was curious as to how those classes are actually determined. I did some research on my own, but haven't been able to find the answer I am looking for. Is it based on index properties for various strength components? Excessive traffic levels or loading conditions? How do these classes factor into hydraulic applications? Etc. Just looking for some literature regarding this subject.
Thank you in advance!
