Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil GRS Walls Book Excerpt:

The first book to provide a detailed overview of Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil Walls Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil (GRS) Walls deploy horizontal layers of closely spaced tensile inclusion in the fill material to achieve stability of a soil mass. GRS walls are more adaptable to different environmental conditions, more economical, and offer high performance in a wide range of transportation infrastructure applications. This book addresses both GRS and GMSE, with a much stronger emphasis on the former. For completeness, it begins with a review of shear strength of soils and classical earth pressure theories. It then goes on to examine the use of geosynthetics as reinforcement, and followed by the load-deformation behavior of GRS mass as a soil-geosynthetic composite, reinforcing mechanisms of GRS, and GRS walls with different types of facing. Finally, the book finishes by covering design concepts with design examples for different loading and geometric conditions, and the construction of GRS walls, including typical construction procedures and general construction guidelines. The number of GRS walls and abutments built to date is relatively low due to lack of understanding of GRS. While failure rate of GMSE has been estimated to be around 5%, failure of GRS has been found to be practically nil, with studies suggesting many advantages, including a smaller susceptibility to long-term creep and stronger resistance to seismic loads when well-compacted granular fill is employed. Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil (GRS) Walls will serve as an excellent guide or reference for wall projects such as transportation infrastructure—including roadways, bridges, retaining walls, and earth slopes—that are in dire need of repair and replacement in the U.S. and abroad. Covers both GRS and GMSE (MSE with geosynthetics as reinforcement); with much greater emphasis on GRS walls Showcases reinforcing mechanisms, engineering behavior, and design concepts of GRS and includes many step-by-step design examples Features information on typical construction procedures and general construction guidelines Includes hundreds of line drawings and photos Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil (GRS) Walls is an important book for practicing geotechnical engineers and structural engineers, as well as for advanced students of civil, structural, and geotechnical engineering.

Revising the AASHTO Guidelines for Design and Construction of GRS Walls Book Excerpt:

This report addresses four proposed revisions to the AASHTO guidelines concerning design and construction of geosynthetic-reinforced soil (GSR) walls (AASHTO, 1996). The proposed revisions are regarding: lateral earth pressure on wall facing, long-term deformation, truncated reinforcement at wall base and the CTI tails, and embedment and leveling pad. For each of the proposed revisions, the deficiencies in the current AASHTO guidelines are addressed in detail; the literature on the research findings and measured performance is presented; and the specific revision is proposed. The limitations and practical implications of each proposed revision are also discussed.

Measuring and Modeling Time Dependent Soil Behavior Book Excerpt:

The effects of time on the strength and deformation characteristics of various materials can assume importance in a variety of engineering problems. The time dependent mechanical behavior of soil is highly complex and can impact a broad range of applications such as in situ testing, seismic response, landslides, and embankment performance. This volume provides an update on the state of research and practice in the area of soil time effects. Emphasis is placed on laboratory and field developments, modeling time dependent behavior, rate dependence in a variety of soils, from subtropical soils to subglacial till, and on new applications such as soils reinforced with geosynthetics and inclusion dowels. Models are provided that include the influence of soil structure.

Shored Mechanically Stabilized Earth SMSE Wall Systems Design Guidelines Book Excerpt:

As a Federal Highway Administration design reference for highway projects, this report was prepared to enable the engineer to identify and evaluate potential applications of shored mechanically stabilized earth (SMSE) walls. Included in this design guideline are a literature review on similar construction and the results and interpretation of field-scale testing, centrifuge modeling, and numerical modeling of an SMSE wall system. Results of the centrifuge modeling and field-scale testing show that reduction of the reinforcement length to as little as 25 percent of the wall height (0.25H) provides sufficient wall stability, even under a considerably high degree of surcharge loading. Using the results of the modeling and field testing research, this design guideline recommends a minimum reinforcement length equivalent to as little as 30 percent of the wall height (0.3H) for the MSE wall component, provided that the MSE reinforcement length is greater than 1.5 m. The benefit of attaching reinforcement to the shoring wall is found to be small and is generally not recommended except by way of the upper two layers of reinforcement. If possible, these layers of reinforcement should overlap the shoring wall and have a total length of 0.6H. If this is not possible, then these layers should be attached to the shoring wall. Internal design requirements of the MSE wall component for an SMSE wall system differ from that of a traditional MSE wall. Equations presented in this design guideline have been developed specifically to address these requirements. The benefits of increased retaining abilities provided by the shoring wall, such as reduction in lateral load acting on the MSE wall component and contribution to global stability, are considered in the design process.
