TenCateTM is a 300+ year old company and the global
leader in geosynthetics. We develop and produce
materials that increase performance, reduce costs and
enable people to achieve what was once unachievable.
Our goal is to contribute significantly to progress in the
industries in which we work.
TenCateTM Geosynthetics make the difference.

Conclusions
Reinforced sections (sections F and H) performed better than the
control in terms of rutting and pressure on subgrade.
Pressure and strains in the reinforced sections did not change
much until about 100,000 wheels passes. After that, geotextiles
was mobilized and these parameters changed considerably.
