ISO 12236:2006: Geosynthetics — Static puncture test (CBR test)
Testing Machine for Determination of Static puncture test (CBR test) of Geosynthetics per ISO 12236
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2016. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 12236:2006 specifies a method for the determination of the puncture resistance by measuring the force required to push a flat-ended plunger through geosynthetics.
The test is normally carried out on dry specimens conditioned in the specified atmosphere. The test is applicable to most types of products, but not to materials with apertures greater than 10 mm.
