Numerical Modeling and Design Development of Geosynthetic Reinforced Flexible Pavements

Project #: 428573
Start Date: 10/01/1998
End Date: 12/31/2001
Status: Completed

This project was an extension of earlier experimental work supported by the Montana State Department of Transportation (MDT). This experimental work consisted of the construction, instrumentation, loading and monitoring of pavement test sections reinforced with geosynthetics.


The objective of this project was to develop a numerical model (finite element model) of a geosynthetic reinforced flexible pavement where the geosynthetic is located in the base aggregate.
