Abstract: A wide variety of geotextiles and related products available to civil engineers to solve a wide range of problems are briefly presented along with their functions and possible applications. The extensive work being carried out at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, is highlighted. The testing required for hydraulic applications is presented in detail. The work carried out on design of needle-punched fabrics for hydraulic applications is described. A case study on use of edge drains for rural roads is presented. The work in progress on natural fibre geotextiles with jute and coir is included.
