Various Applications


Embankment construction on soft soil is a very challenging job. In this context, the use of geosynthetics to improve embankment stability is one of the most effective and an excellent form of application in soil reinforcement engineering.

In this case, geosynthetics can be effectively used for:

a. Reducing soft ground movement due to low bearing capacity provided


b. Prevents global failure of the embankment and on soft soil foundations


c. Prevents sliding failure along the geosynthetic surface


Geosynthetic efficiency as reinforcement of embankment construction on soft soil can be described as follows:

In the special case of using a reinforcing effect, the so-called “basal reinforced piled embankment” can also be used. Prefabricated piles or earth piles can be planted before geosynthetics. If drainage materials are used, geosynthetics can be used properly to contribute to speeding up the settlement process due to consolidation of the soft soil layer.

For further analysis, geotechnical software can help to find out how the performance of the use of geosynthetics in this embankment construction is. Below is an example of an analysis using Plaxis on embankments using geosynthetic reinforcement and not using geosynthetic reinforcement.
