Abstract

Embankment construction on soft soil may result in excessive settlement, loss of bearing capacity, or sliding instability. However, geosynthetic-reinforced pile-supported (GRPS) embankments offer an effective technique to overcome the problems resulting from soft foundations soils. This paper presents a review of the most important parameters affecting the behaviour of GRPS embankments as well as design methods that estimate tensile forces in the geosynthetic layers and load efficiency. Results highlight the importance of using GRPS embankments, but also reveal the inconsistencies between design methods. Finally, general conclusions about the design and construction of GRPS systems are presented.
