Shallow Embankments over Soft Soils
Embankments or shallow embankments appear on almost every infrastructure project. They are often part of rail, roadway or temporary-works projects such as platforms incurring extremely high surface pressures from construction plant operating on top.
Issues arise when soft soils (Su<25kPa) or very soft soils (Su<12kPa) are present in the subgrade. In these situations a ground improvement method has to be applied to ensure short and long term construction safety. This can add unexpected cost and complexity to a project, particularly if soft soils were not encountered during initial ground investigation or if they stretch over large areas.
For decades Tensar have worked alongside contractors to reduce constructions costs and deliver optimal performance for structures on soft soils.
This webinar will review some of the approaches and design methods for delivering cost effective embankment and shallow embankment solutions.
