Research, Design and Validation of NPA Geocells in the Field

Dr. Pokharel is a leading expert in the application of the geosynthetic reinforcement especially, NPA geocell technology. Findings from his years of research at U. of Kansas are used to design sustainable Geocell-reinforced structures. His recent published research has focused on validating Neoloy Geocell design and performance in the field, particularly on road pavements in Canada, as well as quantifying the contribution of NPA geocells to sustainable roads.
