The influence of subsoil reaction in a basal reinforced piled embankment

HJ Lodder, SJM Van Eekelen and Adam Bezuijen UGent (2012) 5th European Geosynthetics Congress, Proceedings. 5. p.390-394
abstract
The behaviour of a geosynthetic reinforcement (GR) in a piled embankment depends on the amount of arching, membrane reaction and subsoil reaction. This paper considers the subsoil reaction as described in the guidelines for piled embankments of the Netherlands (CUR 2010) and Germany (EBGEO 2010) and suggests a modification. This suggested modification leads to a larger influence of the subsoil reaction. A series of nineteen 3D piled embankment model experiments was performed. One of the advantages of the test set-up is the ability to measure the complete load distribution. This paper compares the results of three tests with EBGEO/CUR and the suggested analytical modification and focussing especially on the load distibution between the GR and subsoil. Comparison of the calculations and measurements show that the suggested analytical modification of the subsoil reaction results in more accurate predictions.
