GEOTEXTILE IN THE EMBANKMENT

GEOTEXTIEL IN DE AARDEBAAN

This report presents the results of the activities of the G2 "Textile fabrics in road construction" working group, which was supervised by the Netherlands Centre for Research and Contract Standardization in Civil and Traffic Engineering (CROW). Guidelines are presented for the application of geotextiles as reinforcement in embankments of roads. After a general discussion of the reinforcement function of geotextiles in soil, different types of geotextile are described. Next, geotextiles as reinforcement for embankments on soft soils are discussed, followed by geotextiles as reinforcement for steep slopes. In this respect some test cases, methods for calculating the stability, and the construction aspects are discussed. Finally, some test methods for checking whether the geotextiles meet the requirements are recommended. For other reports of this working group see IRRD 873026 and 853120.
