Special Lecture, sponsor by CeTeau:
“Geogrids for Road, Rail and other trafficked areas”

  • Keynote Speaker: Mr. Angelo Ricciuti, Director, NewGrids Ltd., UK
    Tuesday, April 21at 1:30pm - 4:30pm in UTC+08
    Meeting Room 1, 4th Floor, EIT Building, Bangkok, Thailand
    By Geotechnical Engineering Subcommittee, The Engineering Institute of Thailand Under H.M. The King’s Patronage
    Sponsor: CeTeau (Thailand) Co., Ltd.

    Biiaxial geogrids are extensively used worldwide for the reinforcement and stabilization of roads, rail track-beds and other trafficked areas. Geogrids, with their high tensile strength and optimum interlock characteristics, combined with compacted granular fill, with its high compressive strength, provide an integrated load-bearing platform on soft ground. Because of the interlock reaction available the fill is efficiently compacted to its full depth. Compared to un-reinforced fill, or fill that is less efficiently reinforced and compacted, this system reduces vertical and horizontal stress on the soft foundation. This allows high traffic loads to be carried with significantly less depth of fill. Also, the reduced vertical stress, spread over a wider area, leads to less differential settlement. This yields improved drive or ride characteristics to a pavement throughout a longer life.
