Description / Abstract:

The design and execution of earth structure using geosynthetic reinforcements is based on DIN 1054, 2005 edition, the European execution standard EN 14475 (reinforced fill) and ZTV E-StB, 2009 edition, with the associated terms of delivery, and the Geosynthetics Fact Sheet. Continuing on from the first edition in 1997 these EBGEO Recommendation employ the partial safety factor concept. In addition to analysis and verification fundamentals and the demands placed on construction materials (ground, geosynthetics) several sections deal with the various applications: Embackments on soft soils, Reinforced foundation pads, Transport routes, Retaining structures, Landfill engineering reinforcement of surface-parallel stratified systems, Reinforced earth structures over point or linear bearing elements, Foundation systems using geotextile-encased columns, Overbridging systems in areas prone to subsidence, Dynamic actions on geosynthetic-reinforced systems. Examples are provided to clarify the Recommendations. With the publication of these EBGEO Recommendations the German Geotechnical Societys (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Geotechnik e. V. (DGGT)) Working Group AK 5.2 Analysis and Dimensioning of Soil Structures using Geosynthetic Reinforcements supports construction practitioners in the design and analysis of geosynthetic-reinforced earth structures. The Recommendations are therefore regarded as best structures and as supplementing standards.
