Western ghat situated in India is considered as one of the most landslide susceptible region which makes it more dangerous to build long lasting road pavements. To overcome this problem we tried to strengthen the base layer of concrete pavement with the help of geoweb, made up of geo polymers. A laboratory based analysis was carried out with the help of various tests. For analysis of vertical stresses on concrete block the strain gauge and LVDT sensor are used in this study.
To validate the results obtained from laboratory based design and analysis the powerful software for finite element design known as ANSYS is used. A 3D model of rigid pavement is created and by keeping all other material properties same the vertical stresses are calculated from ANSYS.
Regarding that finite element analysis, this study gives comparison between the standard concrete pavements having base course, sub base course and concrete block having geoweb included in its base course. The numerical analysis and model analysis by using software provides assurance.
