Using Geogrids, Geotextiles, and Natural Materials for Separation
Design methods and material options to maintain the integrity of granular layers over fine-grained soils
Duration: 1 hour
In this video, we will review the options available to the designer for maintaining the integrity of granular fill layers which are placed over fine-grained soils to provide a stable surface. Multiple design approaches are available for addressing this common challenge, using both natural materials and geosynthetics such as geogrids and geotextiles. The following topics will be included:
Applicability of different approaches
Advantages and disadvantages of each approach
Common misconceptions on this subject, and how they can lead to inefficient designs or even failures
