In order to improve overall performance, Geocells have been used in various geotechnical applications, such as embankment, highway, railway, slope protection, etc. For railway embankments, the three-dimensional unit form of geosynthetics with three-dimensional interconnected structure is a new development in this field.
Geocell for railway stabilization has become a new breakthrough and development in railway subgrade construction in recent years. It has changed the previous problems in the roadbed construction, such as large amount of consumables and high cost.
The advantages of Geocell for Railway Stabilization include:
1. As the bottom of the railway embankment is reinforced, the ultimate bearing capacity increases and the corresponding settlement decreases.
2.Improvement factor is more or less constant beyond a particular settlement for geocell reinforced bed.In case of geocell with basal geogrid it reduces with settlement.
