Need Help regarding Thesis
I am Ralph Raymond Pineda, currently a 5th year civil engineering student at the University of Santo Tomas, Philippines, and I am currently doing my thesis entitled: "Feasibility of Used Polyethylene (PE) Tarpaulins as Geosynthetic for Soil Reinforcement". I would like to ask how will I be able to analyze welded portions of the tarpaulins and how to analyze if I were to double the thickness of the tarpaulin sheet by putting one on top of the other. My study's framework includes: Analysis on the effect of exposure of tarpaulins to local environment condition, effect of printed inks on tarpaulin sheets, and analysis of welded sections on the tarpaulin sheets, to the mechanical properties including: tensile strength, tearing strength and breaking strength. If you have any suggestions or ideas please do tell me. It will be a great help on my study. Thanks and Good day.
