Better Bearing Capacity for Container Yard on Geocells

Constructing on weak subgrade is always a challenge, but geosynthetics provide high-quality, efficient, and economical solutions. An exemplary case can be found in the busy city of Kolkata, India, where a logistics company needed to improve a weak subgrade at the site of a new container yard. Geocells provided the answer. ALLCARGO LOGISTICS Ltd.’s container yard was to be located at Kidderpore Doc... »

PODCAST: The Coming Wave of Biogeotechnical Engineering

Biogeotechnical engineering is adding enzymes, microbes, and much more to the engineer’s toolbox Geosynthetics have achieved some remarkable levels of performance in infrastructure. They play a big role, but they are only a small part of a project. Other materials, such as soils, aggregates, and concrete make up the rest of infrastructure. Increasingly, we find geosynthetics being used in co... »
