  title={Geosynthetic Reinforcement for Soft Foundations: US Perspectives},
  author={Mohammed A. Gabr and Jie Han},
Geosynthetics have been successfully used as reinforcements for embankments and shallow foundation on soft soils. Their applications include the use of geosynthetics for increasing stabilit y of embankments, increasing bearing capacity of footing on soft foundations, creating construction platforms, and bridging over sinkholes. In recent years, geosynthetics mats have also been used in combination with pile or column systems to support embankments over soft foundations. This paper identifies… CONTINUE READING
