EPS Geofoam Applications:
Recently, the United States Federal
Highway Administration (FHWA) urged all states to consider using
alternate materials when planning fill and embankment projects.
Traditional fills can easily overload existing soils and foundations,
and so engineers often look for a lightweight, yet durable
alternative that will not increase load by as much as heavier
fillers. Enter expanded polystyrene (EPS) Geofoam. EPS Geofoam is
light, versatile, and strong enough to support heavy loads, including
EPS Geofoam is the ideal material to
use for railway embankment construction. Not only does it reduce load
and increase load capacity, but it also helps to lower settlement and
strengthen foundation soils - all while helping to decrease budgets
and projected time of completion.
