synthetic, non biodegradable, reinforced soil, stabilization


Geotextile reinforcement is better than the rest of the methods. Gotextiles are synthetic and non-biodegradable. They are more flexible in comparison to metal strips and thus compatible with soil deformability. Along with shear strength they also improve ductility unlike admixtures. They are economical and less time consuming. They can be used for various purposes like separation, reinforcement, drainage and filtration. Geotextiles is a newly emerging field in the civil engineering and it also has huge potential in different applications. Geotextiles play an important role in modern design of pavements. Due to their multifunctional characteristics like drainage, fileration, reinforcement etc. They have great scope in future. Geosynthetics reinforced soil (GRS) retaining structures have been widely used in geotechnical engineering projects such as residences, highways, bridge abutments, and slope stabilization. This paper reviews the work of various researchers on stabilization of soil and use of geo-synthetic materials in improving its strength.
