Introduction: Sand-grid confinement is a new concept for pavement base course construction that is being developed at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES). The concept involves the confinement of sand in interconnected cellular elements, called grids, to produce a load-distributing pavement base layer. Poorly graded sands which are generally found in abundance around the world can be used in expedient construction of sandgrid base layers for many military pavement applications. The sand-grid concept is currently being researched for potential applications in road and airfield pavements, airfield bomb damage repair, erosion control, field fortifications, and expedient dike construction.
