The Application and Design of Geo-Grid in the High Embankment Engineering in Airport
With the conduction of west development in China, the constructions of airports in the southwest mountainous areas are being carried out rapidly. Due to the various exteriors limitations, the embankment engineering in airports often exist some problems such as large height and slope ratio. So the stability of high embankment engineering is very essential to the construction and operation of airport. The cost of geo-grid material is very low and the construction is convenient. The embedding and occlusion of soil mass can be realized through its unique grid structure. The practical engineering shows that the stability of high embankment engineering can be solved through laying geo-grid in the filling soil. At the same time, FEM strength reduction can take the interaction between the components of geo-grid and soil into full consideration. As a strict mechanic method, FEM strength reduction can be reasonably and reliably adopted in the stability analysis, design and calculation of reinforced body with geo-grid.
