International Seminar on Geosynthetics India '08
It is hard to believe that only two weeks from now, GIGSA will be hosting the first regional conference on geosynthetics to be held under the auspices of the IGS in Cape Town. Much hard work has gone into the organisation of the conference, and we are busy finalising the review of papers submitted.

Man Made Textiles in India
The present paper discusses about the importance of using geotextile in Railways. Geotextile are used for stabilisation and load bearing capacity improvement of subgrade below the railway tracks us of geotextile may increase cost of railway tracks, however teh maintenance cost reduceby giving the railway tracks long life time.

The Economic Time Polymers
This article describes a case study wherein a short stretch of railway track formation coming under the jurisdiction of Northeast Frontier Railway, which was experiencing a severe problem of ballast sinking was stabilized using an indigenously manufactured knitted and coated polyester geogrid and a nonwoven geotexile. The observed field conditions are described in brief and the probable causes for unsatisfactory performance are listed. The proposed solution comprised of removing the ballast, preparation of the formation, laying of a nonwoven geotextile with a thin sand cushion at bottom and top and installing a knitted and PVC coated biaxial geogrid over this. The cleaned ballast was placed and packed over the geogrid. The installation procedure is explained briefly. The work was completed in August 2006 and the subsequent performance of the rehabilitated portion is found to be satisfactory as recorded by the department through issue of a performance report.

The response of a railway track structure to applied train loading depends on the complex interaction of its components - the super structure comprising the rails, fasteners and the sleepers and the substructure consisting of the ballast, subballast (if any) and the subgrade. The horizontal and vertical deformations of the substructure induce deviations in the horizontal alignment and vertical profile of the track from the designed geometry. Such track roughness affects riding quality and also results in increased dynamic loads which in turn leads to further deterioration of the track geometry and increased wear and tear. Such problems necessitate frequent track maintenance (packing) and sometimes speed restrictions also, thereby affecting the cost and efficiency of operations.
