EPS can be used for many things in the Civil Engineering for example Pre-stgressed concrete beams or as Geofoam whihc is infill for roads and bridges. EPS has been widely used on recent government road and bridge projects in Brisbane.
Solid EPS can be support for large distributed loads with only small deformation. This quality has been use dextensively in Korea, Japan, USA and Europe to provide light weight fill under roadways on low bearing capacity soils and in slip zones. The compressibility of EPS is taken into account in the design of the Geofoam fill enabling large depths of EPS to be used.
