LJ POLYTECHNIC PROJECTS/MODELS
STUDIES AND ASPECT OF TECHNICAL GEOGRID
The main purpose of this project is to study reinforcing effects of Geogrid-reinforced soil. It is generally evaluated by the tensile effect due to tensile force of a Geogrid. An evaluation method in which reinforcing effect can be divided into tensile effect and confining effect. The mobilized confining effects is given by a function of dilantacy rate, in which the basic idea is in the assumption of the decipated energy done by unit volume of the reinforced soil mass. The confining effect is introduced into the tie-back wedge method of Geogrid-reinforced retaining wall in a practical design.
