<p>The pull- out strength of the reinforcement has a significant role on the function of the most reinforced soil structures. Since the coarse grain soils have a better interaction with the reinforcement, they are mostly used in these structures. In most situations, ...

<p>A considerable number of damaging earthquakes in Greece, have produced a variety of macroseismic effects to both built and natural environment. After a strong earthquake, rotational effects have been observed mainly on free-standing columns, statues, chimneys, ...

The 'field' performance of different geosynthetics to reinforce ballasted rail tracks was investigated. An extensive monitoring program was undertaken on fully instrumented track sections constructed near Singleton, New South Wales. Four types of geosynthetics ...

<p>The use of geosynthetics is to improve the performance of foundations when constructing on soft compressible foundation soils. The material properties of geosynthetics are important to their use in various applications. Geosynthetics have become well established ...

<p>Soil reinforcement is defined as a technique to improve the engineering characteristics of soil. In this way, using natural fibers to reinforce soil is an old and ancient idea. Consequently, randomly distributed fiber-reinforced soils have recently attracted ...

Large cyclic stresses induced from heavy traffic can cause significant degradation of rail tracks, leading to poor track geometry and safety. Inclusion of resilient materials such as geosynthetics to reinforce the track substructure has been observed in the ...

<p>Even though geosynthetics are now a well-established discipline within geotechnical engineering, ingenuity continues to be significant in projects involving their use. This is probably because of the ability to tailor the mechanical and hydraulic properties ...

All over the world, ballasted railway tracks form one of the major transportation networks designed to provide heavy haul freight and passenger traffic. However, large cyclic loading from heavy axle trains operating at high speeds often causes excessive deformation ...

<p>Materials with either an open or closed cellular structure, whether occurring naturally or manufactured, are noteworthy for a variety of reasons. They make very efficient use of relatively small amounts of solid material arranged in the form of numerous, ...
