EPS Geofoam Applications: Culverts, Pipelines, Buried Structures

Unfortunately - or fortunately depending upon your viewpoint - not all construction projects can be labeled "new construction." Because of that, road and bridge engineers often find themselves having to take existing structures and utility lines into consideration when planning roadway construction jobs. Often times, engineering plans call for the placement of new fill over existing underground structures or utilities that simply were not designed to support the increased loads. Fortunately for those in the construction business, there is a simple solution: expanded polystyrene (EPS) Geofoam.

EPS Geofoam As A Fill Alternative

Rather than removing, rebuilding, or strengthening existing underground structures, new fill loads can be reduced to tolerable levels by using EPS Geofoam instead of denser, less reliable traditional fills. This reduces the overall time and cost of a construction project. Compared to traditional fill materials, it is lightweight but surprisingly strong. It’s actually 98% air. According to The EPS Industry Alliance, it acts as “a linear elastic material up to a strain of about 1%.” It comes cut into blocks that can be conveniently used without special equipment. Whatever the project, using EPS Geofoam cuts down on time and cost.
