Geocontainers in road building and hydraulic engineering construction

Engineering and construction of roads, subways, airfields, bridges and transport tunnels

Geocontainers are structural loops made of high-strength geotextile. In the course of construction they are filled by ground or inert material on-site. The geomatrix is the next step in the development of geocontainers. It is the cellular structure made of geotextile, the cellules are connected by lacing or by thermal welding.

The aim of the article is to acquaint the reader with this type of geomaterials, possibilities of its use in different areas of construction.

The technology of using geocontainers and geomatrix in road building and hydraulic engineering is considered. Recommendations for its using in frozen soils and in swamps are given.
