Geosynthetic
<p>The use of geosynthetic reinforcement in piled embankments over soft soils is an effective solution for the reduction of settlements and to increase the embankment stability. The most efficient position for the reinforcement layer is on the pile cap or head. However, a direct contact of the reinforcement with sharp edges may damage it, compromising its ...

<p>Despite the advances observed over the last decade, Brazil still suffers from the scarce use of recycled construction and demolition waste (RCDW). On the other hand, most of the roads in the country are unpaved and present low loading support. In this context, the construction of geosynthetic reinforced unpaved roads with RCDW could stimulate the market...

<p>The use of granular column is one of the ground improvement methods used for soft soils. This method improves the foundation soils mechanical properties by displacing the soft soil with the compacted granular columns. The columns have high permeability that can accelerate the excess pore water pressure produced in soft soils and increase the undrained s...

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...
