Abstract
Jute Geotextiles (JGT) are the natural counterpart of the polymeric geotextiles (SGT). There are inherent differences in characteristics between the two types. Jute is a natural lignocellulosic eco-friendly annually renewable bast fibre, is cultivated principally in India and Bangladesh. Jute being a renewable resource and eco-concordant, JGT is gradually being preferred in developed countries for environmental reasons. Some of the intrinsic properties of jute fibre such as high initial tensile strength, low extension at break, high section modulus and hydrophilic characteristics make it an ideal ingredient for geotextiles. In-plane fl ow capacity is an important property of any geotextile when they are employed for drainage applications. This in-plane fl ow capacity mainly depends on several factors such as normal pressure, thickness and porosity of the fabric, its compressibility under the applied normal pressures, etc. This paper will compare the fundamental properties of different jute geotextiles and polymeric geotextiles and their in-plane drainage capacity. Especially the relation between the fl ow capacity and normal pressures is established in these studies.
