Soil-roots performance of Pennisetum setaceum ‘Rubrum’ on mechanical soil strength

  title={Soil-roots performance of Pennisetum setaceum ‘Rubrum’ on mechanical soil strength},
  author={Muhamad Firdaurs bin Abdullah},
The potential of Pennisetum setaceum ‘Rubrum’ root in soil reinforcement was investigated. This African native perennial bunchgrass has been introduced in many parts of the world as an ornamental plant and for soil stabilization. The traditional civil engineering techniques such as concreting of welded wire walls for slope stabilization may not be sustainable in the long term due to high initial capital cost. It also looks harsh and unnatural to the road users. Alternatively, vegetation… 



The Study of Soil-Roots Strength Performance by Using Pennisetum Setaceum Grass

Vegetation is regarded as a new engineering material contributes to slope stability and reduces superficial soil erosion, both by soil shear reinforcement and influencing soil water content. Yet, it

The Soil-Root Strength Performance of Alternanthera Ficoidea and Zoysia Japonica as Green Roof Vegetation

The rise of awareness on environmentalism has demanded that all parties involved in built environment to implement green technology in their construction projects. Great care must be taken when

Root reinforcement and slope bioengineering stabilization by Spanish Broom ( Spartium junceum L.)

Abstract. The present paper deals with the root system's characteristics of Spanish Broom (Spartium junceum L.), a species whose capacity for adaptating and resisting to drought is worth

Live root-wood tensile strength of Populus euramericana , ‘ Veronese poplar ’ by

Root system architecture and stand density are major factors that influence the degree to which trees enhance the mechanical reinforcement of soils (Phillips & Watson 1994). Soils containing roots

Assessing the effect of Alnus roots on hillslope stability in order to use in soil bioengineering

The role of plant roots in stabilizing slopes is obvious, but the amount of the effect is varied in different species. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of alder ( Alnus

Soil Reinforcement Capability of Two Legume Species from Plant Morphological Traits and Mechanical Properties

Vegetation is an essential tool to reinforce soil and improve slope stability. Two legume species, lead tree ( Leucaena leucocephala ) and copperpod ( Peltophorum pterocarpum ), were tested in terms

Soil-roots Strength Performance of Extensive Green Roof by Using Axonopus Compressus

Green roof technology has been proven to provide potential environmental benefits including improved building thermal performance, removal of air pollution and reduced storm water runoff.
