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...

Geomembrane liners are used in all types of containment structures. Evaluating the performance of a geomembrane liner is a challenge. While zero leakage into the ground is a legitimate goal if the leaking liquid may pollute the ground and the ground water, or if the soil integrity can be impaired, zero is unrealistic and impossible to measure. Furthermore, zero ...
