Parametric study of geocell reinforced pavement

Samo Peter Medved, Bojan Žlender, Stanislav Lenart

Abstract

Parametric study of geocell reinforced pavement, based on FEM results, is presented in this paper. The FEM analysis models include unreinforced pavement structures and geocell-reinforced pavements with various geocell positions, thicknesses and strengths. The model output includes the expected life of the pavement. Parametric study results are consistent with the results of analytical solutions, laboratory tests, and field-test experiments, obtained as a part of an extensive research project. The results reveal a significant improvement in capacity, reduction in asphalt-layer thickness, and an increase in life expectancy of the geocell-reinforced pavement structure.
