The publication states that during the final area of the 20 th century, a brand new category of fabrics referred to as Geo-synthetics emerged which resulted in major revolution within the layout of geotechnical and geo-environmental structures. Geotextiles expand the carrier lifetime of roads, elevate their load sporting ability and decrease rutting and different distresses. The effectiveness of geotextiles in stabilization and separation roles with versatile pavements has been largely researched.

Recognizing the immense potentiality of this constructed Bituminized Jute Paving textile (BJPF) as overlay on present pavements to enhance and in part alternative the bitumen mastic, a robust wish of sharing the findings encouraged through the writer to put in writing this accomplished technical instruction manual. the writer firmly believes that this publication will at the very least partly satisfy the necessities of the engineering scholars and practising engineers and should suggested them to delve deeper into the topic to discover new avenues for its use and to refine the present layout methodologies.

Self-healing fabrics are man-made fabrics that have the integrated strength to fix harm. Failure in fabrics is usually as a result of the incidence of small microcracks through the fabric. In self-healing fabrics phenomena are caused to counteract those microcracks. those procedures are preferably caused via the prevalence of wear and tear itself.

JGT is an effort in this direction. Special features of jute fibre have been gainfully utilized in development of jute geotextile matching its synthetic counterpart technically in all its features except of course durability and tensile © 2016 by Woodhead Publishing India Pvt. Ltd. 44 Growing environmental concerns have prompted scientists/ technologists to look for natural, biodegradable alternatives for geotechnical applications. Jute with its unique features fits in with this aim. 46 These are fabricated by both man-made and natural fibres with different designs, shapes, sizes and compositions according to site specific conditions and functional needs.

64 Management of watersheds and prevention of denudation of arid and semi-arid lands are some of the other promising areas of application of jute geotextiles.

Geosynthetics have since been used extensively in many more projects like waste disposal and water resources projects, power projects, airports and hilly areas. 72–79 Prefabricated vertical jute drain developed by Ramaswamy is quite well known by the name of fibre drain. The fibre drain is popularly used in Indonesia for soft deep-seated clay consolidation purposes. Being 100% biodegradable, it is the only environment-friendly drain available today, which makes it acceptable even by the developed countries.
