Studies investigated the potential benefits of geogrids for flexural capacity and strength of concrete beams. It was found that geogrids can provide post-cracking ductility and an increase in load capacity, depending upon the type of geogrid being used. Another study based on laboratory experiments and numerical modeling examined the use of geogrids for concrete thin overlays, and found that geogrids provide significant improvements to concrete overlay performance in the post-cracking regime in terms of strength, ductility, and mode of failure.
