There are usually two main problems in the construction of ports and container yards, each of which affects construction decisions and long-term maintenance:
Heavy pressure from container stacks
Uneven ground settlement
Typical methods of improving such sites include strengthening the foundation by installing prefabricated vertical drainage pipes (PVD) and pre-imposing additional costs to the area. This is a slow process because the surcharge is charged in stages and settlements need to be closely monitored. Stockpiling usually involves a lot of earthwork to gradually reach the final load, which is usually equal to the load to be transferred from the load system.
Geocell for Ports and Container Yards incorporate a geocell layer in the paving to reduce the pressure on the subsoil. This provides a thinner pavement design without sacrificing load carrying capacity or safety. Combined with easy-to-place fillers, geocell solves the differential settlement problem and provides a uniform working environment.
Geocell for Ports and Container Yards has many advantages:
(1) Compared with traditional methods, it can save up to 15% of cost
(2) Quick installation
(3)Use cheap local materials
(4)Extend service life and reduce maintenance costs
(5) Load distribution ensures that the bearing pressure is within a safe range in uniform settlements and even workplaces
