Abstract:
In the last few years, the use of geocell reinforcements in various infrastructural projects has gained importance due to its positive benefits. This paper reviews the developments and state-of-the-art pertinent to geocell research and field practices. The geocell studies covering, experimental, numerical, analytical and field performances have been reviewed. Characterization of the geocell has been discussed in detail. The field investigations of the test sections and the performance of the in-service geocell supported structures have been reviewed. A note has been presented on current research trends and the future prospects. A summary of the past research findings has been presented with a discussion on the research gaps in the subject area. It is evident from the past studies that the geocell is evolving as a promising sustainable ground reinforcement technique. Due to an increased use of geocells in the infrastructure projects, there exists an expansive scope for further research to understand the material better.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
