NUMERICAL MODELLING OF SOIL IMPROVEMENT USING GEO-FABRICS (2015)
A series of finite element (FE) simulations are carried out to evaluate the benefits of integrating a high modulus geo-fabric as reinforcement into the soil-layers in this paper. Finite element analysis can handle complex geometry, different boundary conditions and material properties with ease. In the present study a finite element program, PLAXIS, which has proved its efficacy in geotechnical application, is used. This paper presents a two dimensional plain strain finite element model that analysis of foundation in unreinforced and geo-fabric reinforced soil subjected to distributed load condition.
