  • Research: Design and Construction of PRS Neoloy Geocells Reinforced Mud Embankment

    This study, by Sitharam and Hegde provides academic proof that geocell foundation is a suitable solution for reinforcing an embankment. A laboratory comparison between an NPA Geocell-reinforced sample from red mud in Lanjighar, Orissa in India, and an unreinforced sample from the same location, demonstrates that NPA Geocells increase bearing capacity by up to 5 times. The study also showed that ...

  • Research: Studies on Geocell Reinforced Road Pavement Structures

    This study by Rajagopal, Veeragavan and Chamdramouli demonstrates that the reinforcement of NPA Geocells significantly improves the stiffness and elastic modulus of pavements. The study provides academic proof, using both a field study and laboratory plate loading tests, that NPA Geocells increase elastic modulus by a factor of up to 2.92. The study also showed that the addition of NPA Geocells ...

  • Research: Performance of shallow footing on geocell reinforced clay bed

    While deep foundation or ground improvement techniques are often used to construct in soft ground, they are often very costly. Past research has shown that geocell reinforcement increases the load carrying capacity of the foundation bed and is also cost-effective. However, very few studies have tested commercially available geocells such as NPA Geocell. In this study, NPA Geocell reinforced ...

  • Unique experiment with geotextile

    This is on behalf of Rivierenland Water Authority. Therefore, a  15 m wide and 0,5 m long GeoDetect filter and detection system, provided by Ten Cate, has been positioned vertically on the test dike. Over a period of one week, tests will be conducted to see if this approach can counteract piping. Sensors and water-pressure meters will be used for monitoring. GeoDetect was developed to detect ...

  • ASTM D4595 - 11 Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Geotextiles by the Wide-Width Strip Method

    The determination of the wide-width strip force − elongation properties of geotextiles provides design parameters for reinforcement type applications, for example design of reinforced embankments over soft subgrades, reinforced soil retaining walls, and reinforcement of slopes. When strength is not necessarily a design consideration, ...

  • ASTM D7701 - 11 standard test method for determining the flow rate of water and suspended solids from a geotextile bag

    This test method may be used as an aid to design geotextile container systems that contain fine-grained, high water content slurries such as dredged materials to meet special environmental or operational requirements. This test is often used to demonstrate the efficacy of geotextile dewatering to regulatory agencies in determining the amount of dredged material sediment passing through a ...

  • Golder UK achieves `highly commended` status for geotextile-assisted dewatering project

    The first large-scale application in the UK of geotextile-assisted dewatering of wet silts arising from lake de-silting. This method converted wet and unusable silt into a much smaller volume of relatively dry material that was suitable for reuse on site, thereby reducing the off-site disposal of waste silt to zero. Golder Associates project manager Jonathan Buckley says: 'I am particularly ...
