Over time as pavements age and are subject to heavy traffic loads and extreme weather conditions, pavement distress begins to accumulate. This distress can include potholes, rutting, and cracking, requiring the need for maintenance or rehabilitation to prevent premature pavement failure. However, the existing cracks are one of the biggest threats to the future performance of the pavement, in that they become reflective cracks, which quickly propagate upward through a new asphalt overlay, leading to a rapid loss of serviceability of the newly surfaced pavement. This blog post will explore how to waterproof and mitigate reflective cracking using asphalt pavement interlayers.
Designing pavements with longer lifespans at a lower cost can be difficult for engineers looking to deliver the best possible performance for every dollar invested. Unfortunately, high traffic loading, environmental conditions, and inadequate drainage constantly challenge the functional lifespan of your pavements. Since 1965, the asphalt pavement interlayers have had an outstanding record of improving pavement performance while reducing maintenance and roadway life-cycle costs. This blog post will explore the various applications for asphalt interlayers and how to select the right interlayer for your pavement.
Engineers and Contractors often experience stress over completing their projects due to soft soil, which requires them to purchase more aggregate and material or, worse, extend their timelines, leaving them at risk of penalties and fines. At GeoSolutions, we have partnered with Tensar to provide you with InterAx geogrid, Tensar’s most innovative technology to save you time, reduce cost, and improve the lifetime value of your sitework projects.
As a trusted civil engineer, you can't afford to have your soil stabilization projects fail. Still, due to budget and time constraints, many civil engineers are forced to compromise the success of their projects. We don't believe you should have to stress over project failure. Identify how the Presto GEOWEB® Geocell’s straightforward design and easy implementation ensure long-term performance and your project's success.
Looking for a long-term, economical solution to erosion control by means of reinforced vegetation, Turf Reinforcement Mats are a great way to enhance your slopes and channels. TRMs or Turf Reinforcement Mats are easy to install, cost-effective, and work wonders on any soil or terrain.
If you're looking for a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to control soil erosion and protect your premature vegetation from rain runoff, look no further than Erosion Control Blankets. These versatile blankets are made from various biodegradable materials such as cotton, straw, wood, and coconut to determine their life expectancy and level of performance when protecting your site from potential erosion.
Tensar InterAx Geogrid is the next generation in geogrid technology, and it’s made by one of the most trusted brands in the industry. This innovative product will provide you with cost-effective solutions for your project needs. Learn about how this game-changing solution can help improve your projects success!
A poor subgrade is the number one cause of pavement failures. Even the best-designed and properly installed pavements can fail if the soil built upon is too soft and weak, resulting in structural issues. Understanding the importance of staying ahead of your pavement's natural life cycle is critical to avoid costly damage and time wasted. Learn how you can take control and reduce costs by as much as 20 percent.
Discover how we provided a cost-effective solution to stabilize soft soils below a highway lane widening area. While eliminating the need to cement stabilize the subgrade and allowed the DOT to keep the same design section thicknesses while implementing a solution to address long-term moisture concerns.
By now, you have probably read or heard about the multiple benefits of using geogrids in various types of civil engineering construction applications. The two most significant are the improvement of your construction project's speed and the reduction of your overall cost. But you might still be asking yourself, what exactly are geogrids and how do they create an impact on my bottom line and project's success?
What if you didn't have to waste time, energy, and money trying to perform repairs and upgrades to your roadway stabilization projects after their completion due to early failure? What if, instead, you had the power to reduce cost and material by 20 to 40 percent, improve construction speed, and provide profitable solutions by saving on recurring expenses. Well, the truth is you can, with the use of geosynthetics.
