Recycled construction and demolition waste (RCDW) has demonstrated geotechnical properties that encourage it to be used in reinforced soil structures (RSS) with geosynthetics. However, the interaction between RCDW and reinforcements needs to be better understood, given its importance for design. This paper presents a qualitative study on the interaction...

Some types of geosynthetics have been traditionally used as reinforcement in several types of geotechnical projects.They can also be used as reinforcement to increase the stability of cover soils in slopes of waste disposal areas. This paper investigates the influence of some geometrical and mechanical properties of geogrids on the stability of cover so...

The topographic and geological conditions of several regions in Brazil favour the formation of large deposits of soft soils. Sometimes this requires the use of innovative techniques to allow constructions of geotechnical works in these sites. The presence of deep soft foundation soils has led to an increasing number of reinforced bridge abutments being ...
