Controlling sediment at source : an evaluation of erosion control geotextiles

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper presents one method to evaluate the effectiveness or ability of geotextiles in controlling soil erosion. Taking a geomorphological approach, the sub-processes of erosion (rainsplash and overland flow) are simulated separately, at Cranfield University, Bedfordshire, to assess the ways in which different geotextile products interact with, and thus influence, the processes of soil detachment and transport. This level of analysis helps identify effective products, as well as highlighting the physical characteristics required of a geotextile to maximize its effect on limiting detachment and transport of soil particles
