GEOWEB® LOAD-TRANSFER PLATFORMS (LTP)
As a result of its proven load distribution characteristics, the GEOWEB® Load Transfer Platform (LTP) system effectively bridges loads and transfers to columns, allowing greater spacing of piles than with traditional concrete pile cap systems. The high load transfer system results in a reduction in the number of piles/columns required and a reduction in overall cost. The GEOWEB® LTP system transfers the applied load to the vertical columns more efficiently by acting as a semi-rigid slab and is especially beneficial over soft soils. Compared to other geosynthetic solutions for minimizing columns, the GEOWEB® LTP system can be constructed with less expensive sand infill instead of aggregate/gravel and can be placed without the need for low pressure earth moving equipment.


ENGINEERED SOLUTION
Our service includes a complimentary project evaluation, an analysis that applies our load support
calculation tool smartDESIGN™, (limited state analyses and serviceability analyses; according to partial safety concept EC7, German standard DIN 1054 and DIN 4019), three decades of engineering experience, and over 130 data-controlled GEOWEB® in-situ tests.
The Geoweb® LTP application for bridging columns in pile platforms is a patent-protected technology of Soiltec GmbH and is powered by Genuine Geoweb® cellular confinement.


GEOWEB® LTP Key Benefits

  • High load transfer results in a reduction in the number of piles/columns required and a reduction in overall cost.
  • Transfers load stresses between and over vertical columns more efficiently to the support system.
  • Reduces deflections with an overall reduced construction cross section when compared to traditional pile caps.
  • can be constructed with less expensive sand infill compared to other geosynthetic solutions that require aggregate/gravel.
  • can be placed without the need for low pressure earth moving equipment.
  • Reduced construction cost and time line
