SOLVING THE RAILROAD INDUSTRY’S MOST CHALLENGING SOIL STABILITY PROBLEMS
The GEOWEB® system has been successfully employed in the railroad industry for over 30 years solving challenging soil stability problems. Whether for new construction or repair work, the Geoweb system is a trusted, versatile solution to many problems facing railroad engineers and contractors.


STABILIZE TRACK SUBGRADE
Railway engineers worldwide have relied on the Geoweb technology to create high-stiffness roadbed foundations under track, and at bridge approaches, diamonds and turn outs. The Geoweb system is extremely effective in stabilizing track subgrades, and has even more beneficial value in soft soil areas.


BENEFITS OF GEOWEB TRACK REINFORCEMENT

  • Reduces Rock Size and Cross Section Thickness: Rock confined in the 3-D Geoweb structure replaces expensive Rip-Rap, reducing aggregate size up to 10 times. The aggregate thickness / cross-section can also be reduced 50%.
  • Less Down Time: The Geoweb material can be quickly installed to make any necessary repairs and minimize track disruptions.
  • Installation Benefit: Due to the ease of installation, the Geoweb material can be installed by the railroad company’s own crews.


STABILIZE BULK TRANSFER FACILITIES
Heavy traffic at intermodal, port and bulk transfer yards can cause ruts, potholes pavement degradation and even pavement failure. The Geoweb system solves those surface stability problems. The Geoweb structure alsoreduces the depth of pavement required for paved surfaces (up to 30%).


GEOWEBSYSTEM BENEFITS FOR YARD STABILIZATION

  • Creates a stable surface, reduces vertical pressures and lateral stresses.
  • The subgrade material may withstand more than 12-15 times the number of load cycles before accumulating the same amount of permanent deflection.
  • Reduces the structural infill requirements by 50% or more.
  • Reduces maintenance requirements and costs.
  • Fast Installation of up to 4000sqm a day with the ATRA accessories
