About the Presentations:

Geogrid Raft Foundations:
The use of geogrids to create a firm, unyielding working surface for construction of roads over soft subgrades is well stablished. In addition, geogrids can increase bearing capacity and reduce the potential for dierential settlement below structures. This presentation will present new research confirming the “T-Value” method for bearing capacity design, introduce Tensar’s Stratum System for building foundations, provide an example of how the systems can be applied to seismic design, and discuss how to model geo-grids using Finite Element Methods.
