Neoloy Geocell Embankment Foundation on Soft Red Mud Combined with Geogrid Maximizes Stabilization

Experimental study and field analysis show that the bearing capacity of the 3m embankment foundation increased by 4-6x, as Neoloy reinforcement acts as a large mattress that transfers the load widely, while reducing the footing settlement and surface heaving. Hybrid Neoloy Geocell – geogrid reinforcement is recommended by the authors for solutions to mining industries and road and rail embankments in the transportation sectors.
