STUDY ON EMBANKMENT FOR CONCRETE SLAB TRACK UPON FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT--REINFORCED EMBANKMENT WITH NET

To construct concrete slab track and assure minimum maintenance, it is necessary to have a densely compacted embankment, taking into account the specific nature of the fill material and the structure. An embankment reinforced with nets of polyethylene has been developed to achieve this. The nets are laid horizontally at 20-cm intervals throughout the fill slope shoulders. The tensile strength of the net allows the heavy compacting vehicle to transverse the shoulder of each layer of the fill safely. Tests showed the embankment was compacted densely throughout--even at the slope surface.
