  5. 5. Indian Economy Overview• India is one the largest and fastest growing economies in the world• Notwithstanding the economic slowdown, India continued to grow at 6% +• Indias GDP is projected to grow @ 8-10% for the foreseeable future GDP growth rates of the ‘BRIC’ pack In US$ BillionData source: IMF www.
  6. 6. Potential for Geosynthetics in IndiaGovernment of India in the Annual Budget 2010-2011 has ambitious plans for the investment in infrastructure development: Roads & Highways• National Highways Development Projects at a glance (NHDP): NHDP envisages :6-laning 6,500 km4-laning 17,500 kmUpgrading of 20,000 km of National HighwaysInitiating development work of 1000 km of expressways.The MORTH has plans to build 20 Kms. of new road for the whole year.The projected investment is about Rs. 8,12,661 Cr. ( USD 179 billion) over aperiod of six(6) years.Assuming that even 30% of the road stretches use Geo- textiles, this itselfwill require 46 million sq meters i.e. 9500 tons in next 3-4 years. www.
  7. 7. Potential in India based on current budgets Ports• National Maritime development projects (NMDP): India has a 7500 Kms. of coastline Currently, 12 Major ports (6 each in West & East) & 45 Non major and private ports are operational. To provide additional capacity and to upgrade the present infrastructure to international standard, an investment of about Rs.50,000 Cr. (US$ 11 bn) is envisaged in the major ports during the next five(5) years. Port trust will undertake : - Development of 54 new Berths in next 5 yrs. - Several dredging projects would be undertaken - Road & Rail connectivity projects of over Rs.7,000 Cr.(US$ 1.5 bn) is under implementation There is huge potential of use of Geotextiles in coastline as it is specifically used for a purpose of Scour protection. www.
  8. 8. Potential in India based on current budgets Railways Indian Railways is one of the largest railway system in the world An Expansion of new 25,000 km length is proposed in next 10 yrs. Time A dedicated freight corridor project estimated to cost about Rs.57,000 Cr.(US$12 bn) is being implementation. Railways plan development of superfast trains ,350 kmph , for which use of Geotextiles will be a must Geosynthetic can play a very vital role in improving the cost effective track structure design. www.

  49. 49. PROBLEMS:1. River and Canal Banks are subject to wave actions, i.e. reversing flow conditions .It is this dynamic erosive force that undermines bank stability and effects channel flow and/or navigability2. On Coastlines, the three key agents of erosion are : - Waves & Tides Eroding the shoreline - Waves and tidal scour take the eroded sediment away from the coast - Currents sweep the displaced material out to the sea. www.

  62. 62. Advantage of Geosynthetics Geotextile filter, being permeable allows water to pass through releasing water pressure but prevents soil erosion. With specialised built- in factory –controlled Hydraulic and filtration properties a single layer of geotextile can replace a succession of stone filter layers. working under water is much easier because the filter system can be assembled above the water and lowered into position with less time being used. Geotextiles is easier to install either manually or mechanically. www.
  63. 63. Required characteristics of the filtering geosyntheticThe filtering geosynthetic was designed in order to achievethe following purposes: - Good filtering capacity (Appropriate Hydraulic properties) - Impact resistance (must be Robust) - Holding resistance - Resistance to the construction stress (Good Puncture & Tear Strengths) www.

  67. 67. AdvantagesGeotextile filter is a very important component of DrainageComposite. The Heat-Bonded geotextile on Terram 1BZ outperformsother geotextiles by providing:-• Higher chemical resistance• Higher modulus• Higher available strength at working strains• Higher elongation at break• Higher resistance to installation damage• Constant hydraulic properties over a period of time www.

  71. 71. ? ? ? Geosynthetics- Why remains Untapped Potential ? Or- Reasons for Low Growth in India ? www.
  72. 72. Hurdles Observed- Lack of proper awareness and Close interactions and participation between manufacturer/Supplier, Design consultant/specifiers & end user (Civil Contractors, Govt. authorities etcs.).- Non availability of dedicated Indian code i.e Dependency on foreign code- State level agencies lack awareness and many of Govt. agencies remain oblivious about the new products including Geo-synthetics due to improper information , lack of knowledge for advantages of use, low budget etc.- Preparedness of end users designers to go with traditional ways or custom made solutions.- Lack of proper testing and evaluation- Non-availability of trained and experienced Staff. www.
  73. 73. Some Thoughts / Visions / Paths - Unified Indian code, Specification is the need of the hour. - The use of Geosynthetic should be mandatory as it’s now proven technology – This means inclusion in all SOR’s , guidelines etc. - To conduct practical training, Seminars and Exhibitions. - Manufacturer should step forward with best quality with proper testing at economical cost – This also means best cost needs high volumes as well. - Availability of proper testing at National level. - To generate technically trained personnel. - Geosynthetic should be included as a subject or course at BE level. www.
