Does a piled embankment 'feel' the passage of a heavy truck ? Field measurements

SJM Van Eekelen, Adam Bezuijen UGent and PG Van Duijnen (2012) 5th European Geosynthetics Congress, Proceedings. 5. p.162-166
abstract
The highway's exit of the A12 near Woerden (The Netherlands) was reconstructed with a basal reinforxed piled embankment. Traffic loads on the asphalt, load distribution and deformations are being measured. Furthermore, optic fibres were used to measure the strains in both the geosynthetic reinforcement (GR)and the piles. Measurements were carried out every 10 minutes to study the development of the distribution of the permanent load. Additionally, high frequency measurements (500 Hz) were carried out during truck passages. The measurements were compared with predictions of EBGEO/CUR and its modified version, with an inverse triangular load distribution (Van Eekelen et al., 2012a, b and c). The inverse triangular load distribution and the resulting GR strains agree better with the field measurements tha the equally distributed or triangular distributed load of respectively BS8006 or EBGEO/CUR. This implies both for the long-term static situation, but also for the dynamic measurements during truck passages.
