Objective and Type of Reinforcement Used to Soil Retaining Element

Here we will discuss about reinforcement provided in soil to retain and stable earth. Reinforcement that are used, generally, in soil may include following reinforcement types and providing techniques of them

-metallic strips

-metallic girds or meshes

-polymer strips

-polymer grids or meshes

-anchoring or multi-anchoring

-In-situ reinforcement and soil nailing

In case of anchoring and multi-anchoring, ground anchoring is not granted.

Reinforcement that are discussed above may be used in

Synthetic polymer soil reinforcement

a. Engineering fill

b. To have better load bearing capacity

c. To improve weak soils to perform better to support


–resilient structures

d. Can be provided in natural ground to keep steeper slopes stable.
