Embankments on Piles

Here, the use of high-modulus, low-creep Fortrac® geogrids allows the adoption of larger pile spacings and smaller pile caps.

Fortrac geogrids cause a stable and enduring arch to form between the piles while safely transmitting the vertical soil loads to the piles. Lateral loadings may also be accommodated by the reinforcement, reducing the need for raked piles at the edges.
