Abstract: Asphalt reinforcement using stiff polymer grids has reached a worldwide experience of 20 years now. Successful applications have been achieved in various applications as roads, highways and airports in all weather conditions from Arctic to Middle East. Examples of evaluations in various countries and conditions are given. Recent developments in computer modelling based on OLCRACK developments have made it possible to improve design procedures of geogrid reinforcement in asphalt layers. A step-by-step approach is presented in which all relevant requirements are considered for a successful design. Several design examples will be presented based on actual cases.
