Long-term stability of two type geogrids were evaluated. Membrane drawn type geogrid showed the exponential type tensile property and textile type geogrid showed the rapid increase of tensile property closer toward the break point. Accelerated creep test was done for textile type geogrid but not done for membrane drawn type geogrid because of its thermal property. Creep strain for membrane drawn type geogrid was larger than the ultimate tensile strain by tensile test and reduction factor by creep deformation of textile type geogrid was smaller than that of membrane type geogrid.
