In this study, nonwoven and woven geotextiles were used and the different seaming methods were applied to review the seam properties through comparison of tensile strength retention by seaming methods. Also, bonding agents were applied to strengthen the seaming effect on the seamed part and reduction factors of woven geotextiles were analyzed by field installation conditions. Finally, process control and assurance for optimized seaming condition of woven geotextiles were reviewed to improve stability in soft soil structure.
