Ultra High Strength Soil Reinforcement for Ground Improvement – Soft Soils Engineering using Geosynthetics

July webinar soil reinforcement
Wednesday 24 July, 2024
1:00 pm Sydney Time
30 minutes

Discover how TerraStop® and TerraGrid PET High Strength Woven geotextiles and geogrids, made from high tenacity polyester (PET) yarns and manufactured under ISO 9001 QA conditions, provide exceptional tensile strength with low elongation. Learn about their compliance with NSW RMS R67 and Qld TMR MRTS 100 standards and the importance of quality control tensile testing as per ISO10319:1996. Understand the design factors, long-term strength, and stiffness influenced by temperature and loading duration, based on independent research and industry standards.

Key Learnings

  • Understand the concepts of rolled soil reinforcement products. How do they work?!
  • Design Standards discussed: BS8006, AS4678, BRE470;
  • The difference between long term sustained and dynamic design loads and how they affect products used;
  • Common Applications: Basal reinforcement over soft soils for embankments; working platforms for plant and vehicular traffic;
  • Comparison with subbase reinforcement for flexible pavements using geogrids
