        Geosynthetic materials have great potential of use in civil engineering projects. A wide range of their applications in geotechnical, environmental, transportation and hydraulic fields has been developed during last decades. Beside these known functions, some modern concepts of applications are also proposed. Geosynthetic materials can be used as base isolation systems to protect structures against earthquakes. All these applications are emanated from the specific dynamic properties of geosynthetic materials. This paper describes on modern aseismic applications of these materials and reviews experimental studies carried out through shaking table tests. Based on the outcomes of this study, geosynthetic materials can be properly used in civil structures as seismic isolators providing suitable protection against seismic actions.
