Geocellular Confinement


Geocellular Confinement takes infill materials and produces a stiff base by creating a semi-rigid slab. The system prevents the lateral displacement of infill materials which eliminates rutting and washboarding usually associated with gravel pavements. The system allows for a reduction in overall base thickness, as well as enabling subgrade materials to withstand more than 10 times the number of cyclic load applications, without the appearance of deflection when compared to unconfined aggregates. GCS allows for the use of lower quality infill materials in situations where quality aggregates are not readily available and helps to create pavements on soft soil subgrades. When it comes to load support in porous paving applications, Cell-Tek's LSG SERIES delivers the competitive advantage.

In the news: Oahu Dissolving? Researchers Say Island Erosion Increasing

Researchers studying the impact of erosion on the Hawaiian Islands have found that Oahu is eroding at a faster rate than the other islands with the majority of the erosion occurring in non-traditional ways.
Researchers from Brigham Young University in Utah spent two months trying to uncover the rate of erosion of the popular vacation destination.
"We tried to figure out how fast the island is going away and what the influence of climate is on that rate," Steve Nelson, a Brigham Young University geologist, wrote in a press release. "More material is dissolving from those islands than what is being carried off through erosion." - This excerpt is from an article by Myles Collier , Christian Post Contributor
