Paper Title:
Yield Design of the Reinforced Embankment
  Abstract

A frequently used technique for improving the performance of geotechnical structures consists in incorporating into the backfill soil, during the construction process, regularly spaced thin reinforcing inclusions, called geotextile, geomembranes or geogrids. The stability of embankment, stabilized by reinforcing membranes, is investigated by means of a multiphase model developed in the framework of the yield design approach. By means of the kinematic approach, leading to upper bound estimates for the stability factor of the structure.
