Geosynthetics October/November 2020 - 43

Wind whip prevention is an important concern for environmentally
exposed geosynthetics. In addition to
developing design strategies to limit the
degradation of geosynthetics in high
winds and understanding the different factors affecting geosynthetic performance (geometry, formulation and
structure), quantifying and studying the
wind-whip phenomenon is important to
better understand the durability of geosynthetic materials. This standard will
serve as a vital indicator of fatigue performance for long-term wind exposure,

thus aiding an engineer in the geosynthetic selection process.
The requirements of the wind tunnel
used in this experiment are as follows
and can be seen in Figures 2 and 3:
robust construction, ability to produce
a laminar (nonturbulent) flow profile at
a specified velocity, and ability to sufficiently dampen vibrations from both
the motor and fluttering test specimen.
For this method, a subsonic wind tunnel
will be utilized, which is able to produce
wind speeds between 9 and 150 mph
(15 and 240 km/h), which is far below
