Geocell Bearing Capacity Improvement in Road Construction

Studies by Meyer and Emersleben evaluated how the geocell reinforcement mechanisms work, and describe the improved geotechnical engineering forces provided by the soil-cell composite structure. Results from full- scale field testing validated the results achieved in plate box test testing. Neoloy Geocells increased load bearing capacity by 5x, reduced differential settlement by up to 80% and decreased vertical stresses by more than 40%; in addition the performance of a 40 cm Neoloy Geocell reinforced base layer equaled a 70 cm unreinforced layer with high quality aggregate.
