Geosynthetics for soil reinforcement

Abstract: This lecture introduces geosynthetic materials and briefly describes their types and manufacture, functions and applications, properties and tests, design, selection, and specifications. Geosynthetics for soil reinforcement are then discussed in some detail, with specific applications to embankments on soft
foundations, steep slopes, and for the backfills of retaining walls and abutments.
Emphasis is on the materials properties of the geosynthetics required for design and
