    New Guide for Use of Geocells in Geotechnical and Roadway Projects

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D35.01 | Committee D35 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK61159

    1. Scope

    This guide is intended to cover basic considerations for the use of geocells in geotechnical projects.


    Keywords

    geocell; cellular confinement; geotechnical engineering; stabilization; ground improvement; slope; retaining wall; channel protection

    Rationale

    There is currently no guide for the use of geocells in geotechnical projects. Standard guidance is needed to bring a more unified understanding of the most efficient and appropriate ways to utilize this type of ground improvement technology for a variety of geotechnical-related applications, including but not limited to: slope stability, erosion control, retaining walls, earth retention, channel protection, pavement load support, and subgrade improvement. Engineers and owners interested in using this manufactured product can refer to the information in this guide to learn about key design principles, properties, and methodologies for applicable geotechnical applications.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
