TESTING OF SUBGRADE STABILITZATION FABRIES MOVES AHEAD-4

The "soft" condition of an industrial track leading into a plant was solved by using a nonwaven plypropylene cloth that can be fabricated to specified dimensions in the shop or joined at the job site. This Polyfelt TS300 aids in stabilization by its quality of elongating under stress by 120% before rupturing. The material has both vertical and horizontal permeability but filters out fines that would otherwise be carried up to the ballast. Installation procedures are described.
