THE ROLE OF ESCR IN THE LIFESPAN OF GEOCELL

Written by technical manager Mike Jotzke, Environmental Stress Crack Resistance of polyethylene material plays an important role in the geomembrane industry. 

IMPACT OF HOOP STRESS ON GEOCELL PERFORMANCE

In order to determine and evaluate the most important parameters of geocell material, the interaction between hoop stress and earth resistance was utilized within a series of load tests.

SUSTAINABILITY OF GEOCELL  IN ROADWAY APPLICATIONS

Geocells provide unmatched stability to unpaved road ways by significantly increasing the structural number through the confinement provided by the interconnected cells. 

DURABILITY OF HDPE GEOMEMBRANE

Used as a barrier system for a series of applications,  HDPE geomembrane is commonly used in landfills because of its long-term durability which enables its service life to surpass decades. 

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF GEOCELL IN ROADWAYS

The use of  reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) material paired with the EnviroGrid® Geocell, provides a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to the design and construction of roadways. 

LONGEVITY OF HDPE GEOCELL

The EnviroGrid® Geocell is made up of ultrasonically welded strips of high density polyethylene. Though the lifetime of this material varies with each application, there is a way to calculate the estimated service lifetime
