SETTLEMENT OF AN EMBANKMENT

HET ZETTINGSGEDRAG VAN EEN WEGLICHAAM

Following some theoretical observations on soil settlement the object of experimental sections constructed on a motorway embankment is explained. The situation of the sections, the earthworks, the subsoil and the vertical drainage systems used are described. The tests carried out and the instrumentation of the sections are outlined. It is concluded that the several drainage systems seem to be nearly equivalent with regard to the settlement of the embankment. In a continuation of this article the results of the experiments will be discussed in greater detail. /TRRL/
