Paper Title
New applications for geosynthetics have been identified by combining the electrokinetic phenomena of electroosmosis, electrophoresis and associated electrokinetic functions such as electrolysis with the traditional functions of geosynthetics of drainage, filtration, containment and reinforcement to form electokinetic geosynthetics. Electrokinetic geosynthetics (EKG) have been identified as a technology, which combines a wide variety of materials, functions and processes to perform such diverse functions as dewatering, strengthening and conditioning in materials such as soils, sludges, slurries, tailings and composts.. The benefits and drivers for the use of EKG applications include, countering climate change, reduction in carbon footprint of processes, reduced costs, water recovery and compliance with legal directives.. On a technical level the use of electrokinetic techniques can be used to counteract climate change and reduce the risk of liquefaction of tailings.. In the biological dimension the effectiveness of EKG methods relates to increased biological activity in relation to increased oxygen availability and warmer temperatures and varying pH. Also it is used to stablise slopes in the areas where the soil is very weak and high moisture content. Applications have been identified in a range of industrial sectors including water, mining, civil and environmental engineering, food and sport..When used on natural sports turf, the combined effects include control of water flow, pore pressure, pH and oxygen levels. The result have shown that controlled application of electrokinetic phenomena using EKG provide several key benefits including: dewatering to influence water content, shear strength and ball bounce, and aeration of the root zone with increased root respiration and microbiological activity. Thus we have utilize the Electrokinetic geosynthetics (EKG) to a new form of stabilising the sports turf and we have interprete the result of the sports turf before and after applying the technique.
