Investigation on durability testing of polyethylene (PE) geocells

  • 1 Technical University Sofia, Bulgaria,branch Plovdiv


In this article, the residual strength of PE geocells after accelerated aging is experimentally investigated. The characteristic is of key importance for the application of geocells, as it is related to their service life.The durability test is defined as essential in the applications standards of the product-EN 13 255:2016,EN 13 251:2016.
