Six nonwoven jute based geotextiles consisting of varying proportions of jute and polypropylene fibres were evaluated for their engineering properties by ASTM/BIS standards for geotextiles and related products. The test results, their evaluation and categorisation of jute based geotextile fabrics are reported. The test results show that jute based geotextiles are capable of adequately performing different engineering functions such as, separation, filtration, drainage and reinforcement. The degree to which the fabrics tested fulfill the requirements for the above functions is also brought out.
