A Geocell panel is a three-dimensional cellular confinement system made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) strips that are welded together to form a grid-like structure. These panels are used in civil engineering applications, particularly in soil stabilization, erosion control, and slope protection.
Geocell panels can be filled with soil, sand, or aggregate to create a stable base for roads, railway tracks, parking lots, and other heavy infrastructure. The interconnected cells provide lateral restraint, preventing lateral movement of the fill material and enhancing the load-bearing capacity of the soil.
Geocell panels can also be used for erosion control on steep slopes or riverbanks, by trapping sediment and preventing it from being washed away by water. The panels can be vegetated to promote plant growth, further enhancing their erosion control capabilities.
Overall, Geocell panels are a versatile and cost-effective solution for a wide range of civil engineering applications, providing strength, stability, and erosion control while reducing the amount of material needed for construction.
