Development of a Laboratory Test for Evaluation of Geogrid Materials

This research will evaluate alternative laboratory tests to determine material properties of geogrid that impact in-situ performance of geogrid used for subgrade stabilization. This will allow the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to objectively evaluate various geogrid materials that are submitted for approval. Further analysis will be conducted to illustrate cost savings by optimizing geogrid position within the structure.
