GEOfabrics has been at the forefront of research into developing geosynthetics since we were established in 1990. As part of our product development process we work with a wide range of stakeholders to advance understanding and effectiveness of product applications.
Documenting the background to the TrackTex development process are 3 key papers which were published to provide detail on various aspects of the background to the development, the simulations and testing used to test and verify performance, through to early use in commercial applications.
Synthetic Replacement for Sand-Blankets to Prevent Pumping Failure describes the development process undertaken to produce a lightweight, cost effective geosynthetic for use in trackbed as a replacement for sand blankets.
Accelerated Testing of Geosynthetics is Trackbed using Europes Largest Full Scale Rig describes the construction of our full-scale trackbed load test facility, and how it was used to simulate the harshest conditions found in railroad trackbed construction.
The Development of a Geocomposite to Prevent Mud Pumping describes the research background to TrackTex, summarises the main causes of subgrade erosion, and how several years of testing provided rigorous simulation of the harshest conditions under a mainline railroad, and how this testing was validated in one of the first commercial installations.
At TrackTex, we offer a range of services designed to address the challenges of mud pumping and ensure the stability and performance of your tracks. Our team of experts utilizes advanced techniques and technologies to deliver effective solutions tailored to your specific
