Geofoam: An Innovative Construction Material
Geofoams are one type of geosynthetic materials used for several geotechnical applications such as slope stabilization, foundation and retaining wall or abutment backfill. They are lighter in weight and can be mounted everywhere comfortably. They are also useful in roadway and runway subgrade insulation and foundation settlement in case of swelling soils. This paper discusses about the geofoam material, its specifications and applications.
