GEOWEB® 3D Soil Confinement

This resource package offers tools & resources to design high-performing, long-lasting rail infrastructure ─ track, yards, embankments and channels.

Key Rail Applications

  • Ballast Reinforcement
  • Embankment Stabilization
  • Yard Stabilization
  • Stormwater Channels

Take the tour. See how geocell soil confinement benefits the most challenging soil and ballast stability issues in rail applications.

How 3D Soil Confinement Benefits Rail

Strengthens & Transforms Fill

With the GEOWEB® system, fill materials are confined and stabilized — even under the heaviest loading or steepest grades. The benefits? Higher performance and lower maintenance —of track, pavements, embankments & channels.

Ballast Reinforcement

Typical Track Problems Solved by the GEOWEB System

Common Soft Subgrade Issues

  • Differential settlement
  • Pumping and heaving
  • Ballast contamination
  • Poor drainage

Leads to:

  • Ballast attrition
  • Maintenance/shutdown
  • Speed reduction
  • Worst case – derailment

Benefits Delivered by the GEOWEB System

Track:

  • Reduce ballast attrition
  • Bridge poor sub grade soils
  • Reduce tamping and maintenance cycles

Special Track Work

  • High G force wheel impacts
  • Extend life and reduce repair cycles

Bridge Approaches

  • Provide high G force transition area
  • Reduce settlement

Grade Crossings

  • 90-degree loading
  • Rigit transition

Ballast Reinforcement Benefits

Use of Lower Quality Fill

Save on Hauling and Material Costs. When fill is confined in the GEOWEB® system — on-site low-quality infill may be used — even coarse sand or salvaged ballast. Use of lower quality fill is a significant savings on hauling and material costs versus imported ballast.

Facilitates Better Drainage

No-Fines Infill Improves Drainage. For poor drainage areas, fill with limited fines can be used as the GEOWEB cells provide the confinement and aid compaction of cohesionless soils.

  • drainage is significantly improved
  • water flows freely through the system preventing pore pressure build up and potential for global failure of the ballast section

Reduces Cross-Section Thickness

GEOWEB®-confined sub ballast delivers structural benefits that reduce cross section thickness by up to 60%. The improvement results in significantly less installation and rehabilitation costs.
