Proposed ASTM geocells standard aims to support soil stability in road projects

January 23rd, 2020

A proposed ASTM International standard will provide guidance for using geocells—open-celled geosynthetics that help hold soils and rocks in place—in roadway projects. Geocells are commonly used in road construction, earth retention and other construction projects. According to ASTM International member Eli Cuelho, there is currently no standard for using geocells in geotechnical and roadway projects. […]
