Tensar Research Center

At Tensar International, we believe in and support continual product performance testing and validation. This testing is essential for improving designs, providing better performing products, and driving innovation. Below are just a few of the research projects we’ve invested in to test and validate our products and software:

 

Pavement Optimization

Date Application Title Objective
2017 Pavement Optimization Full-Scale Accelerated Testing of Multi-axial Geogrid Stabilized Flexible Pavements -- US Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC)
Provide performance data of paved sections comparing Tensar TriAx geogrids to conventional methods over very stiff soils. Compare a thicker asphalt pavement to thinner stabilized asphalt pavement with a TriAx stabilized base. Record pavement response data in order to verify Tensar’s mechanistic models currently available on the market. Verify SpectraPave4Pro design values.
