Rivers, coastal zones and everglades are always in transit equipment at the crisis. Geogrid concrete mats can be used in applications of appropriate. Concrete mats consist of light weight reinforced concrete beams with high strength which are connected using the geogrid network. Quickly and easily removable, high flexibility and resistance can held together the concrete beams with lower thickness and be able to spread on watery land using crane are the main characteristics of these mats. In this case, condition is prepared to cross military equipment and vehicles on the shallow and marshy rivers. Panel structural design, measurement strain on mats and discussion about time series obtained from panel has been carried out in this research. The results show that the amount of created strain in geogrid was 11%, which was much less than the allowed amount and coherence between the concrete and geogrid was very good because of proper function of the metal wire.
