Bamboo- lime composite pile - a new low cost reinforced earth system

This paper presents a new low- cost reinforced earth system using bamboo- lime composite piles for controlling landslides along highway embankments or for increasing the bearing capacity of weak soil. The mechanism of bamboo- lime- soil interaction during the pile installation process is presented. Experimental data includes the heat and volume changes on the bamboo culm caused by the quicklime. Load deflection characteristics of the bamboo- lime pile by means of pull test have also been performed and examined (a).
