Experimental investigation regarding the mechanical properties of poriferous Geocells produced in Iran


Author(s): Semko Arefpanah and Alireza Sharafi

Abstract: The use of various reinforcing materials is widely used for the stabilization and stabilization of beds, infrastructure, and soil slopes. Geosynthetics are one material and offer the advantages of high durability, reasonable price, wide application, and fast execution. Depending on the application, Geosynthetics come in different types, including geotextiles, Geocells, Geomembranes, Geogrids, Geofoams, Geonets, and Geocomposites. Each of these types plays a role in various fields such as reinforcement, isolation, moisture barrier, erosion control, and drainage, and considering that in the field of increasing soil bearing capacity, Geocells are the best type. Geocell has a very good performance in terms of increasing the bearing capacity compared to flat reinforcements, due to its cellular structure and providing the necessary confinement for the soil inside the cells. The use of Geocells is welcomed by many researchers due to the three-dimensional nature of their lattices. A unique poriferous Geocell was developed using unique technology through research on a three-dimensional honeycomb-type Geocell for enhancing bearing capacity, reinforcing soil fields, and vegetation base layers. In this paper, the characteristics of the original poriferous network structure are evaluated and the results are presented. The newly developed poriferous Geocell, which has passed the property evaluation, is expected to be applied as a competitive method in related fields in the future due to its excellent friction properties and differentiated permeability properties.
