Part 3: Field evaluation of the performance of unpaved roads incorporating geosynthetics—Implementation

June 1st, 2016

Introduction The mechanisms that govern unpaved road performance are complex, and accurate field evaluation of the performance of unpaved roads incorporating geosynthetics is not easy because it involves many influence factors. Interpretation of test data can be correct only if there is a good understanding of the mechanisms (which was the purpose of the Part […]

Part 2: Field evaluation of the performance of unpaved roads incorporating geosynthetics—Planning

April 1st, 2016

Introduction Scope and terminology The mechanisms that govern unpaved road performance are complex. Therefore, it is legitimate to try to get quantitative data from laboratory and field tests, but test interpretation can be correct only if there is a good understanding of the mechanisms (which was the purpose of the Part 1 article), rigorous planning […]

Part 1: Mechanisms governing the performance of unpaved roads incorporating geosynthetics

February 1st, 2016

Authors’ note: Road improvement is one of the major applications of geosynthetics. It is also one of the most complex because of the variety of mechanisms involved. This Part 1 article provides a description of the mechanisms that govern the performance of unpaved roads incorporating geosynthetics. It will be followed, in the next issue of […]
