Paper Title:
The Influence of Geometric Structure of Geogrids on the Pullout Resistance
  Abstract

The influence of geometric characteristic of geogrid on pullout behavior is still an unresolved problem in the application of geosynthetic reinforced soils. The laboratory pullout tests were employed to investigate the effects of geometric structure features on the pull-out test results. The results of this study indicate that the effect of geometric structure on pullout behavior is reflected in two aspects: geogrid type and mesh form of geogrid. The variation of geogrid types can lead to the changes of the pullout force and pullout modulus. For the latter one, the reduction of longitudinal and transverse geogrid ribs not only causes the decrease of friction and transverse rib bearing resistance, but also changes the mesh form which is the geometric structure of grids.
