PRODUCT SUMMARY

  • High long-term design strengths (LTDS): Miragrid® geogrids have more than 220,000 hours of tension creep testing performed at an independent test laboratory.
  • Credible: Dependable long term strength assured.
  • Cost effective: Creep resistant polyester fibers provide higher allowable tensile strength, minimizing the required number of geogrid layers. Wide rolls significantly reducing placement time, lowering cost.
  • Light weight: Easy to handle and no sharp edges.
  • Flexible, tough: Minimizes movement of soil structure.
  • Strength: Miragrid® geogrids provide the widest strength range, and are the highest strength geogrid material in the market today.

TenCate Miragrid® XT uniaxial geogrids function for:
- Soil Reinforcement

Case Studies:

How Miragrid 5XT Is Used

Waste Management was needed to close a section of the Elk River Landfill, Phase 15 Cell, and apply a final geomembrane cover. To reduce the intrusion of the western landfill toe into a buffer area, the Landfill Operator or Owner needed a steep 40-foot high landfill side slope.

Gale Tec Engineering (USA)  prepared a Value Engineering Change Proposal,  or VECP, for the Contractor that would reduce the original project costs by effecting a geosynthetic reinforcement 1H:1V landfill side slope without hindering fundamental performances and characteristics of the project. 

The project involved the construction of a steep 1H:1V landfill western slope at 40-feet above grade and the slope needed to support a new access road at the top of the landfill.

The Design

A soil reinforcement area defined by a slope of 1H:1V determined for the project.  Due to both internal and global stability issues, the 1H: 1V slopes were designed and constructed with soil reinforcement.

A limit equilibrium computer program was brought in to assess the stability of circular and wedge failures within the reinforced slope sections. The global failures were designed based on the “target” factors of safety of 1.1 - 1.3 for temporary conditions and 1.4 – 1.5 for long-term conditions. The computer analysis performed searches to identify the most crucial failure surfaces as related to factors of safety. To provide both long-term and temporary stability to the slopes, geosynthetic fortifying layers were embedded into the newly constructed perimeter berm using granular fill.

Installation

The main reinforcement was achieved by installing TenCate Miragrid® 5XT and 7XT followed by installing Miragrid® 2XT as a secondary geogrid at 1-foot intervals between the main reinforcement layers.  The main embedment lengths were 32 feet at the bottom of the berm and 28 feet at the top. For the reinforcement to work properly, the geogrid lengths needed to lie flat and taut. To make this happen, the fill was shoved out over the grid panels.

Erosion at the face of the reinforced slope was a major concern due to infiltration during storms. These storms could generate sloughs and slides in the near future.  The following steps were applied to improve performance - 1 foot of topsoil, an erosion mat that was wrapped around the face, a MnDOT 50B seed mix with 12-12-12 slow-release fertilizer.
