The construction of linear infrastructures and engineering structures on compressible soil requires the development of deep foundation solutions such as rigid inclusions to reduce compaction and increase load-bearing capacity. This solution must be enhanced by the integration of a reinforcing geocomposite such as NOTEX® C, to improve load transfer via “membrane effect” and avoid puncturing the mattress.
Fibre optic sensors can be integrated into the NOTEX® C to monitor deformations, even minor ones, at the heart of the platform.
NOTEX® C is also suitable for earth retention on slopes.
Very high strength possible in both directions
Significant reduction in short and long term settlements
Large mesh aperture for a better interlocking of granular materials
Limited use of granular materials
Improved environmental and economic impact due to the reuse of existing soil
Possible fibre optic integration for monitoring
Environmentally friendly coating (PVC-free)
Reinforcement by high-tenacity PET or PVA cables suitable for specific soil conditions (high pH)
