Traffic Loading Evaluation

Traffic loading evaluations have been performed on HydroTurf®.   In summary, rubber tired vehicles may drive on the system.  Typically, on slopes (up to 3H:1V) we suggest vehicles with tire pressures less than 60 psi, and on flat and designed access roads, we suggest vehicles with tire pressures less than 100 psi.  Upon request, Watershed Geosynthetics is able to provide sample calculations for puncture of the geomembrane component from wheel loading and lateral movement of the system due to vehicle braking.
