The Control of Settlement Using Geogrids

by Gunther E. Bauer, Carleton Univ, Ottawa, Canada,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Vertical and Horizontal Deformations of Foundations and Embankments

Abstract:

The applicability of geogrids in reducing settlements has been investigated in the laboratory in two separate studies, in unpaved roads under cycled load applications, and as overlays for flexible model culverts. These projects are described and the test results are discussed. In both cases the geogrids were found to be effective in reducing vertical settlement as well as horizontal soil displacement.
