Paper Title:
Character of Embankment Reinforced with Geotextile on Sloping Weak Foundation
  Abstract

Based on nonlinear finite element method, the character of embankment reinforced with geotextile on sloping weak foundation has been studied. It is shown that the lateral displacement of embankment has been distinctly effected by the sloping of foundation, the value of lateral displacement on sloping foundation is greatly bigger than that of horizontal foundation. The peak value of lateral displacement can be effectively reduced by geotextile. With the same condition, geotextile in sloping foundation acts a more important effect than that of horizontal foundation. The development of plastic zone of embankment has been impeded and separated by geotextile, which enhanced the stability of embankment. The results also indicated that, if necessary, reinforcement such as anti-slide pile should be layout at lower toe of embankment on sloping weak foundation.
