Abstract ABSTRACT: Technical assessments of structures reinforced with biaxial geogrids with integral or welded junctions in the field or laboratory, have consistently indicated much lower strain development in the geogrids than can be reasonably predicted by conventional or finite element analysis. It appears that biaxial geogrids exhibit much higher stiffness when acting under biaxial operational load/strain conditions than un-der uniaxial laboratory testing conditions. For this reason, ‘in-isolation ’ biaxial testing of these materials has been undertaken on three biaxial geogrids with integral or welded junctions. Test results are presented.
