    Geomembranes are increasingly being used in transportation, environmental and geotechnical applications to control gas and liquid movement. This book provides authoritative guidance on testing of geomembranes. It has been prepared by an international committee of experts under the auspices of RILEM, the International Union of Research and Testing Laboratories for Materials and Structures.
