A geogrid is geosynthetic material used to reinforce soils and similar materials. Geogrids are commonly used to reinforce retaining walls, as well as subbases or subsoils below roads or structures. Soils pull apart under tension. Compared to soil, geogrids are strong in tension. This fact allows them to transfer forces to a larger area of soil than would otherwise be the case.

Geosynthetics for Roadway Construction

Geosynthetics for Roadway Construction

Ever since the Romans used palm fronds and other plant fiber matting to reinforce the sub-bases of their famous roads, fabrics have been used to improve road longevity and performance. Modern road construction methods rely on a family of materials called geosynthetics to achieve the same results. But these more sophisticated materials can

Retaining Walls to Change Land Surfaces

Retaining walls have become the modern-day structures of choice for us to manipulate the surfaces on which we choose to build our lives. From creating more buildable space on a site, to helping stabilize bridges, they are ubiquitous workhorses that are often easily overlooked. But sometimes they take their inspiration

Structural Integrity That Lasts

Structural Integrity That Lasts

Capping and closing a municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill can be a civil engineering challenge. The goal is to eliminate any need for further erosion control work onsite to ensure that the landfill keeps its structural integrity. True, landfill owners are required to adhere to EPA’s post-closure rules as defined

On the Ground and Underground

A lot of good things have been said about Frank R. Bowerman Landfill in Orange County, CA. It has recently powered up a major methane-to-electrical generation station to capture and reuse landfill gasses that some waste operations would be content just to burn off as waste. According to Robert Sjoquist,

Retaining Wall Project Profiles

Retaining walls have become so much a part of our environment that most people barely notice them. However, professionals realize how much they have changed over the years and what an asset they have become. The ability to provide strength and integrity makes some projects possible that once would have

Geogrids for Stabilizing Steep Slopes

The steep slopes and compressible soils caused concern that the road might, sometime in the future, shift and even crack if precast concrete panel retaining walls were used. Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) officials suggested that 1:1 slope reinforcement with geogrid be used instead.
