Abstract:

In this article geotextiles knitted in the form of 3D products composed of knitted bands joined at points to form a cellular net-like confi guration are proposed for the reinforcement of roads. As yet, no one has ever succeeded in producing cellular geotextiles with the use of textile machines. However, the technical solution described in this article makes it possible. The technology of manufacturing knitted cellular geotextiles in a single process signifi cantly lowers the costs of production. Moreover, due to higher deformability, knitted cellular geotextiles would be less subject to degradation caused by the aggregate fi lling the cells of the net.
