Development of Guideline for the Use of Geosynthetics in Different Pavement Layered System in Nebraska

Geosynthetics reinforcement such as geogrid, geotextile, etc. has been used as a viable alternative to stabilize the subgrade of roadway pavement construction in regions with soft and/or problematic subgrade (foundation) soils. Geosynthetics are typically marketed either as having the ability to lengthen the pavement design life through controlling the damage of the pavement or as a cost-saver to reduce the aggregate base thickness while maintaining the same level of design-equivalent single axle loads as with traditional pavement systems.
