Foundation is the base of any type of structure, may it be a single storeyed building to the heaviest structure like dams. For the foundation, the factor that plays a very important role is the bearing capacity of soil. Generally, for any type of soil, the required bearing capacity should always be more than the designed load of foundation, but it is not the same for all cases. Sometimes the bearing capacity of soil is not as good as required, which ultimately leads to settlement. There are many approaches to for improvement of bearing capacity. One of them is use of geo-synthetics materials, they are polymeric products mainly used to solve civil engineering problems. The main product categories used in civil engineering are geo-grids, geomembranes, geosynthetic clay liners, geocells, geocomposites, etc. The present study gives us the idea of increment of bearing capacity-using geocell as a reinforcing material.
