About this Book
The completely revised and extended Recommendations deal with all questions relevant to the planning and dimensioning of geosynthetics-reinforced earth structures. In addition to the demands on materials and analysis principles, the applications of geosynthetics in a range of foundation systems, ground improvement measures, highways engineering projects, in slopes and retaining structures, and in landfill engineering are discussed.
The Recommendations have been supplemented by the following sections:
- reinforced earth structures over point or linear bearing elements,
- foundation systems using geotextile-encased columns,
- bridging subsidence,
- dynamic actions of geosynthetic-reinforced systems.
The remaining sections have been fundamentally revised and updated in line with current standards and codes of practice.
