Finite element studies of reinforced and unreinforced two-layer soil systems

Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to obtain an insight into the mechanisms by which a geosynthetic membrane influences the performance of a plane strain and an axisymmetric two-layer soil system, where the reinforcement is incorporated either into a layer of fill, or at the interface of a layer of fill overlying clay subgrade. New axisymmetric membrane and interface element formulations are developed and incorporated in to an existing large strain finite element code. A linear elastic model of be...
