INFLUENCES OF NON-WOVEN FABRIC INCLUSIONS ON THE STRESS STRAIN BEHAVIOR OF A SOIL MASS

A study of the influence of various types of inclusions in soil systems was given to the behavior of soil systems incorporating fabrics and in particular ICI fibers melt-bonded TERRAM membranes. These investigations have considered firstly, the stress-strain behavior of a unit cell of sand when tested under plane strain conditions, with and without a fabric membrane inclusion; secondly, the plane strain load-deformation behavior of a model footing resting on dense and loose sand and dense sand over loose sand or soft compressible rubber, chosen to replicate clay.
