How cellular confinement systems like EROWeb® are revolutionising soil reinforcement

cellular confinement systems

EROWeb® is a three-dimensional cellular confinement system or geocell that has become widely used in civil engineering projects to improve soil stability and performance. It is made up of a series of interconnected plastic cells that are filled with soil, gravel or other materials. The cells are then connected to each other to form a large, interlocking structure that can be used to support heavy loads such as vehicles or buildings.

The key attributes of EROWeb® and the cellular confinement approach include reinforcement, load distribution, versatility, durability, cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness. The interconnected cells of the geocell help to reinforce the soil, improving its load-bearing capacity and reducing the risk of settling or erosion. The cells of the geocell distribute the load evenly across the soil, reducing the stress on any one area and increasing the overall stability of the structure.

Geocells can be used in a wide range of civil engineering applications, including roadways, embankments and retaining walls. They can also be used to reinforce slopes and embankments and to create foundations for structures. The geocell is made of a durable, high-density polyethylene material that is resistant to UV radiation, chemicals, and extreme temperatures, which makes it suitable for long-term use in harsh environments.

Geocells are a cost-effective solution for soil stabilisation and reinforcement, as they use less material, labour, and equipment than traditional methods. The interlocking structure of the cells allows for a more efficient use of materials, and the lightweight nature of the cells makes them easy to transport and install.

The use of geocells can help to reduce the environmental impact of construction projects by reducing the need for large amounts of fill material. This can help to conserve natural resources and reduce the carbon footprint of the project. Additionally, the geocells can help to prevent soil erosion by reinforcing slopes and embankments, which can help to protect against the loss of topsoil and other natural resources. The geocells can also be made of recycled materials, which reduces the environmental impact of the production process.

In addition to improving soil stability, geocells can also help to improve soil quality by allowing the soil to be reinforced with a minimal amount of fill materials. This helps to preserve the natural soil structure and microorganisms that are important for soil health.
