Numerical Modeling and Design Development of Geosynthetic Reinforced Flexible Pavements

Started: October, 1998 Ended: December, 2001 Project ID #428573 Status: Completed

Objective

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.

Abstract

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.
