Geosynthetics
Recent studies have shown that recycled construction and demolition waste (RCDW) can be used as backfill material in geosynthetics reinforced soil (GRS) structures. However, besides the environmental and economic benefits of this practice, it is necessary to evaluate the mechanical damages that RCDW could cause to the reinforcement elements. This study aims to i...

<p>Geotextiles have been extensively used as filters in geotechnical engineering for over 5 decades. The main reasons for this widespread utilization are that they are manufactured products with repeatable properties, are easy to install and to transport to distant working sites and can substitute natural filter materials where they are scarce or their use...

The type of improvement technique that will be applied to a soil beneath an embankment depends on the nature of the problematic soil existing at the site. Soft soils beneath embankments typically present high compressibilities and low shear strengths. In some cases, geosynthetic-encased stone columns (GECs) have shown advantages over other solutions to improve e...

This paper reviews the behaviour of reinforced embankments on soft ground. Case of the Almere test embankment is used as an example to demonstrate the key function of reinforcement in improving the performance of embankments on soft foundation. The effects of partial drainage are summarized for reinforced embankments and contrasted the results from undrained ...
