Title: Structural behaviour and parametric study of reinforced embankments on soft clays
Issue Date: 2001
Abstract: Geotechnical behaviour of a reinforced embankment on soft ground is studied by a numericalmodel based on the ®nite element method. Special emphasis is given to the stress states (stresslevels and pore pressures), displacements, tensile forces in the geosynthetic and overall stability,during and after construction. The in¯uence of some parameters, namely geosynthetic sti nessand viscosity, embankment width and construction sequence, is also analysed. Several conclusionsare obtained.
