Geocell is one of the geosynthetic products used primarily for reinforcing pavements. The numerical modeling of geocell was always a challenge because of its complex honeycombed geometry. This unique three dimensional structure of geocell provide an additional lateral confinement to the encapsulated soil thereby distributing the stresses developed under loading to a wider area. This mechanism of geocell increases the performance of the sand bed to a greater extent.
