Experimental study of the behaviour of different geosynthetics as anti-reflective cracking systems using a combined-load fatigue test

Abstract: A comparison between six different geosynthetics used to control reflective cracking is reported. The laboratory study involved a cyclic load test that combined two loads with different frequencies and amplitudes. Two characteristics are considered: the type of geosynthetic and the secant modulus. The results indicate that the type of the geosynthetic is critical to the long-term behaviour of the system.
