The behavior of foundations on geosynthetic-reinforced clayey soil of low to medium plasticity using laboratory model footing tests was investigated. The model footing was made of a steel plate with dimensions of 152 mm (6 in.) x 152 mm (6 in.). The parameters investigated in this study included the top layer spacing, the number of reinforcement layers, the vertical spacing between layers, and the stiffness and type of reinforcement. The effect of reinforcement on the vertical stress… CONTINUE READING
