Most design models for basal reinforced piled embankments design the geosynthetic reinforcement (GR) as a single biaxial layer. In practice, however, the required strength and stiffness is frequently divided into two ore more GR layers with or without a layer of granular material in between. This paper compares three geogrid-systems : (1) one GR layer consisting of one biaxial geogrid and a (2) one GR layer consisting of two uniaxial geogrids installed directly upon each other and (3) two… CONTINUE READING
