Various Applications


Geosynthetics are effective for use as an unpaved road reinforcement layer and also as a work platform on soft soils. If properly designed, a geosynthetic can have one or more of the following functions: separation, reinforcement and drainage functions.

Geotextiles and geogrids are the most common materials used for this type of application.



Compared to unreinforced road construction, the use of geosynthetics can provide the following advantages:

  • Reducing the need for embankment thickness
  • Separating aggregate grains from the soft soil below (subgrade)
  • Increase the bearing capacity of soft soil
  • Distributes the pressure from the vehicle load better into the subgrade
  • Widen the spread of vertical pressure on the subgrade
  • Reduces vertical deformation due to membrane effect
  • Increase the age of the road
  • Extend the period of road maintenance work
  • Reducing road construction and operational costs


For further analysis, geotechnical software can also help determine how the performance of the use of geosynthetics in the construction of this unpaved road is. The above is an example of an analysis of the difference in deformation that occurs. Deformation in soil reinforced with geosynthetic layers looks smaller than without reinforcement.

Along with the increasing depth of the ruts (deformation of the vehicle wheel load), the geosynthetic will also be deformed and will provide a strengthening effect due to the membrane effect. Several researchers have shown that road construction reinforced with geosynthetic materials will reach a certain ruts depth at a much higher number of vehicle passes than without reinforcement.

So that geosynthetic reinforcement will extend the life of the road and minimize the frequency of routine maintenance. In addition, if later the road is paved, the construction cost will be minimized because the subgrade has been stabilized by geosynthetic reinforcement.
