Paper Title:
Laboratory Triaxial Test Study on Soil Reinforced with Roots of Manilagrass
  Abstract

Laboratory triaxial tests of the soil reinforced with roots of Manilagrass were carried out in order to understand the stress-strain relationship. The change of shear strength indexes of the soil reinforced with roots of Manilagrass was investigated with the quantity of grassroots planted in the soil specimens. The results of laboratory triaxial tests show that the strength and capacity for resisting the deformation of soil reinforced with roots are better than those of unreinforced soil. And under the certain number of grassroots layers, the strength and capacity for resisting the deformation of soil reinforced with roots increase firstly and then reduce with the increasing of Manilagrass roots quantity. In other words, there is an optimal quantity of Manilagrass roots affecting the strength and capacity for resisting the deformation of soil reinforced with roots. The research results are important for understanding the mechanism and use of vegetation protection for slope.
