Model testing of geogrids in unpaved roads

Abstract:

Simple unpaved roads consist of a layer of coarse granular material placed directly onto the surface of weak or compressible ground. It is thought that the construction of such roads can be considerably improved by the incorporation of a geogrid at the base of the granular fill layer. Geogrids are a type of geotextile, distinguished by their relatively large aperture size. Laying out a geogrid on the surface of the ground before placing the fill layer may in many cases allow a reduced thickn...
