Recommendations for Design and Analysis of Earth Structures using Geosynthetic Reinforcements - EBGEO

Overview

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.

Overview

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.
