Evaluating Geogrid Performance with Loaded Wheel Tester

This paper presents a laboratory evaluation of the performance of geogrid-reinforced base materials using loaded wheel tester (LWT). Asphalt pavement analyzer (APA) was used as a platform to test the rut resistance of three types of base materials reinforced with two types of geogrids. The test results show that LWT was able to identify the reinforcing effect of geogrids, indicating that LWT is a promising tool for testing geogrid reinforcement in pavement base.
