Inversed triangular load distribution in a piled embankment, 3d model experiments, field tests, numerical analysis and consequences

SJM Van Eekelen and Adam Bezuijen UGent (2012) 5th European Geosynthetics Congress, Proceedings. 5. p.172-176
abstract
Design models for the geosynthetic reinforcement (GR) in a piled embankment must assume a load distribution on the GR strip between two piles. The Britisch BS8006 and the French ASIRI, for example, assume that this load is equally distributed. The German EBGEO and Dutch CUR, however, assume that this load is triangle-shaped, with in the centre between the two piles a maximum. Van Eekelen et al., (2012a, b and 2011 c), already observed in model experiments that the load distribution on the GR strip should be in the shape of an inverse triangle. This is different from all models presented in literature before. This paper shows field measurements in which the inversed triangle is confirmed, both for permanent load as for short-term load such as truck passages. Furthermore, new model experiments (8 tests) and numerical analysis also support the inverse triangular load distribution theory. Consequences of adopting this change in the EBGEO/CUR guidelines are presented.
