Geotextile Filter Applications Cover

Filtration geotextiles are used in the following hydraulic and marine applications: filter layers in marine structures such as dykes, breakwaters, groynes, etc.; filter layers in shoreline revetments; and filter layers in banks and bed protections of inland waterways. TenCate pioneered the use of filtration geotextiles for repair works in the aftermath of dyke breaches in the Netherlands in the 1950’s. Since then, TenCate has remained at the forefront of the development and advancement of geotextile filter applications in hydraulic and marine engineering.
