  • Geogrid rail embankment solution model

    By developing a cost-effective, rapid and highly sustainable solution for the Brigg Line embankment in Lincolnshire, Arup and Network Rail, with Tensar International and support services and construction company Carillion, have demonstrated a reinforced soil retaining wall approach using geogrids cast into in-situ reinforced concrete wall facing units that can be used to solve similar challenging ...

  • ASTM D7737 - 11 standard test method for individual geogrid junction strength

    This index test method is to be used to determine the strength of an individual junction in a geogrid product. The test is performed in isolation, while in service the junction is typically confined. Thus the results from this test method are not anticipated to be related to design performance. The value of junction strength can be used for ...

  • Tensar Geogrid technology offers sustainable solutions for Rail Trackbed and structure stability

    Tensar International has led the world in the design and manufacture of trackbed stabilisation, ground stabilisation and soil reinforcement solutions since the 1970s. Continuous development and innovation of geogrids and geotextiles, including many patented designs, have led to their use in railways across Europe and the world, as well as road, bridge, embankment, runway and many other ...

  • ASTM D6637 - 11 standard test method for determining tensile properties of geogrids by the single or multi-rib tensile method

    The determination of the tensile force-elongation values of geogrids provides index property values. This test method shall be used for quality control and acceptance testing of commercial shipments of geogrids. In cases of dispute arising from differences in reported test results when using ...

  • New Costa del Sol Housing Devlepment Stabilised

    Spain remains a popular place for UK homeowners seeking a ‘second home’ in the sun. When creating an exclusive, quality housing development to appeal to the discerning UK buyer, walls and embankments are a popular part of landscaping and design to ensure an attractive residential environment. Manilva’s prestigious new housing development under construction near Malaga is being designed with ...

  • Specification Resource on the Web

    geosIndex.com is a new online index of geosynthetic material data created to assist designers, specifiers and other professionals in their site materials selection process. geosIndex includes data for geomembranes (e.g., landfill liners, pond liners), geogrids (e.g., for retaining wall reinforcement), geotextiles for unpaved road support, geosynthetic clay liners for environmental remediation, ...

  • Rapid response to bridge flood misery

    Following November 21’s flood destruction of the town’s bridges over the River Derwent in Workington, Cumbria, Army Royal Engineers have used Tensar International’s TriAx™ geogrid to help construct new bridge abutments for a 40 ton temporary footbridge. Connecting the north and south of the town, the actual bridge will take a week to assemble, and is expected to be in place for Monday 6th’s ...

  • ASTM D6916 - 06c(2011) standard test method for determining the shear strength between segmental concrete units (Modular Concrete Blocks)

    The shear strength between segmental concrete units (with and without geosynthetic reinforcement) and is used in design of reinforced soil retaining walls. This test is used to determine the shear strength for the design of the facing stability of segmental retaining walls. Performing a series of these shear tests at varying normal ...

  • Tensar supports Roman Villa recreation for C4

    The proposal to recreate a Roman Villa/ Bath House on an English Heritage site at Wroxeter, near Shrewsbury, for Channel 4’s January 20, 2011 programme ‘Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day’ , was made possible by constructing it on a reinforced concrete raft foundation over a rock mattress mechanically stabilised with Tensar’s TriAx geogrid. Evans Wolfenden ...

  • Tension Creep Testing in Geomembranes

    Creep, the tendency of materials to deform over time due to applied stresses, has been a focus of the geosynthetics industry since testing first began more than 25 years ago. Creep testing methods have evolved, but the accurate assessment of tension creep (along with transmissivity) remains essential to the product evaluations of organizations considering geomembrane/geocomposite drainage ...
