FABRICS FOR STABILITY IMPROVEMENT IN EMBANKMENT CONSTRUCTION

WEEFSELS VOOR STABILITEITSVERBETERING BIJ DE AANLEG VAN AARDEBANEN

Fabrics are increasingly being used in road construction. These materials, well known in hydraulic engineering, have valuable mechanical properties for road building also. They therefore merit use in addition to plastic sheet that serves principally as blanket course or filter cloth. Fabrics in a pavement function chiefly as reinforcement. In this article the use and properties of fabrics are discussed. Some practical experiments are described and consideration is given to the cost aspect. /Author/TRRL/
