Geosynthetics

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...

Soft ground improvement techniques have evolved substantially in Brazil in recent years. However, their application in soft and very soft clays requires a good understanding of the fundamentals of ground improvement techniques suited to the problem as well as the actual field behavior when implemented on a real scale. This paper describes some of the mo...

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...

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...
