  • Large-Scale Triaxial Compression Testing of Geocell-Reinforced Granular Soils

    The paper describes the results of a series of large-scale triaxial tests carried out on 200-mm-high isolated geocell-soil composite specimens and unreinforced soil specimens. Two different aggregate soils were used in the test program. The reinforced specimens were tested with a height-to-diameter ratio of unity, which matches the dimensions of these systems in a typical base reinforcement ...

  • Comparison of Grasspave2 vs Bomanite Grasscrete Systems

    Grasspave2 is a plastic ring/grid structural reinforcement system for natural turf, made from 100% recycled HDPE plastic, and designed to prevent compaction of the upper root zone from loads generated by pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Plastic materials will not absorb heat or moisture, and will thus not put additional stress upon the grass. At its thickest point, this paver has 92% open area ...
