TENSILE REINFORCEMENT EFFECTS ON BRIDGE-APPROACH SETTLEMENT. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

Two discussions of a paper with the aforementioned title by Monley and Wu, published in this journal (Volume 119, Number 4, April 1993), are presented. In the first discussion, Horvath states a drainage geocomposite between the compressible material and reinforced soil is desirable. The discusser also suggests that the authors use the term "compressible inclusion" in place of "collapsible inclusion" as the word "collapsible" implies an uncontrolled, large-strain occurrence. The second discussion focuses on the model used for polymeric reinforcement. Nothdurft suggests that the model is not completely accurate, based on the use of a linear elastic model when no linearly elastic polymers exist. Discussions are followed by closure from the authors.
