TOPIC: Basal Reinforced & Pile Supported Embankments

The presentation mostly focuses on the design of the load transfer platforms via the Catenary Method and touches on the Modified Beam/Collin Method.  Design of these structures are fairly common-place in Europe with British, German, Dutch, and Swedish design standards.  We’ll do a review of the design method, mostly focusing on the British Method.  We’ll also look at basal reinforced embankments. Basal reinforced and pile-supported embankments are design alternatives for embankments on very weak or yielding subgrades and are used to eliminate settlement challenges. They can be used as alternatives to traditional preloads, excavation and replacement, lightweight fill, and bridging techniques.  The first modern documented application was installed 45-years ago.  Typical applications include bridge approach embankments, road widening, and construction over special deposits such as landfills or contaminated sites.
