Stabilizing Intermodal & Port Yards Using the GEOWEB® System Presented by Bryan Wedin

Get Started

The constant weight of parked trailers, stacked containers, and heavy traffic patterns can cause your intermodal or port facility yard’s surface and subbase materials to degrade. This instability of the base materials causes rutting, potholes, and even pavement failure. These surface problems can require costly maintenance, and significant interruption of facility operations, as well as create a loss of income from usable space.

The GEOWEB® system reduces the vertical pressure and provides a high-stiffness foundation, increasing the load capacity of the subgrade to more effectively handle heavy reach stackers and container loads. In the base layer under hard pavements, confinement of aggregate significantly reduces movement, lateral heave, and settlement for increased pavement life. For unpaved surfaces, the GEOWEB system solves surface stability problems with less aggregate and less maintenance even allowing sand or on-site, lower quality aggregate to be used as infill.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the benefits of using the GEOWEB 3D Soil Stabilization System on surfaces and pavements.
  • Learn how the GEOWEB system reduces vertical pressure and subbase movement.
  • Understand how the GEOWEB system can reduce pavement depths.
  • Learn how the GEOWEB confinement system extends pavement life and reduces maintenance.
