This webinar will review geogrid-aggregate interaction mechanisms and performance tests in different applications, and the parameters which can affect this interaction. It also reviews test methods and procedures for modelling the performance of geogrid and a brief pros and cons of each method. It then provides a summary of the most important performance parameters for geogrids and what needs to be considered when applying performance test results into design procedures.
