About the research

Abstract: This project will involve Intelligent Compaction (IC) measurements to demonstrate performance of geogrid reinforcement of aggregate base material over relatively weak and non-uniform subgrade soils. Results of these experiments will be of national/international prominence in the area of geogrid reinforcement providing new information not previously documented.
