ENHANCED PERFORMANCE OF ASPHALT PAVEMENTS USING GEOCOMPOSITES

Geogrids have been extensively used to reinforce bituminous pavements and have been shown to provide considerable benefits to long-term pavement performance. The paper describes the development and testing of a composite combining a stiff polypropylene geogrid with a geotextile, thus producing a material with the handling and installation benefits of a geotextile combined with the performance benefits of a stiff geogrid. A case study detailing the use of the composite reinforcement is also presented.
