A STUDY OF SETTLEMENT RESPONSE OF A GEOSYNTHETIC-REINFORCED COMPRESSIBLE GRANULAR FILL-SOFT SOIL SYSTEM

The compressibility of granular fill in a geosynthetic-reinforced granular fill - soft soil system has been disregarded in most of the studies carried out so far. It is appropriate to consider this aspect in situations where the system is used as a foundation for structures which need accurate settlement predictions. In this paper, a foundation model is proposed to incorporate the compressibility of the granular fill by attaching a layer of Winkler springs to the Pasternak shear layer. The parametric studies carried out reveal that the consideration of the compressibility of the granular fill results in a significant increase in the settlement of the reinforced foundation soil.
