  • Why Geocells Outperform Geogrids for Road Construction

    Geocells (cellular confinement) offer a more effective and practical 3D design solution to load support challenges than multilayered 2D geogrid efforts. Geocells transfer applied loads instantaneously, delivering practical soil stabilization in a product that is fast and easy to install. How do geogrids work? Geogrids rely on rutting, displacement and lateral movement of the road ...

  • Geotex® 801 Soil helps tame road through the wilderness case study

    The National Wild Turkey Federation has over 800,000 members that are involved with maintaining camps and grounds across the United States. This requires traversing un-paved roads in order to gain access to remote areas, while complying with wildlife agencies rules and regulations. This particular hunting ground posed significant challenges. The best solution to the problem of soft soils and a ...

  • Stabilization of a slope with a steep inclination due to the enlargement of a peripheral road - Case Study

    The challenge The enlargement of the road needs to dig the mountain that leads to the formation of very steep slopes. The terrain consists of Marl and unstable materials and because of its exposure to humidity, has endured frequent landslides. Slope with a steep inclination - Slope with a steep inclination and Landslide The ...

  • Geotex® Geotextiles: A Life Cycle Costing Approach to Roads

    Subgrade contamination is the leading cause of failure in both pavements and unpaved roads. Aggregate layers used to support the traffic or pavement typically rests on a subgrade of sand, silt or clay. Without permanent separation, two factors will undoubtedly lead to the contamination of the aggregate layers—fine-grained soils will enter into the voids of the aggregate, preventing it from ...

  • Areas Where Revetment Mats Can Provide Structure and Ground Stability

    First things first—what does the term revetment mean in relation to erosion control? Well, revetments are like sloping walls placed just right to block or drain invading water before it can destroy a surrounding ground, like riverbanks, beaches, cliffs and man-made waterways. Containing articulated concrete, a revetment mat installation—consisting of one or more pieces—is the ...
