Stability of Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil Structures
Green-geo-engineering with geosynthetic reinforced soil structures is of increasing practice around the world. Poland is among the leading countries with the third biggest geogrid market in Europe. A translation into English is in progress, but also a translation into the Polish language is discussed currently. For many years economical and ecological advantages of construction methods with geosynthetics in geotechnics and hydraulic engineering are reported already. KG, Gewerbestrasse 2, Espelkamp, Germany. In addition, there are environmental advantages, for example due to the possibility of greening up geogrid reinforced slopes Fig.

Reinforced soil with geosynthetics as a composite material represents significant orthogonally anisotropic properties. However, current analytical methods usually treat the soil and reinforcement separately, which is not true of practical situations. Therefore, it is difficult to use these methods to study the real effects of the reinforcement. This paper presents an analytical model based on the theory of elasticity for orthogonally anisotropic materials that can be used in analyzing reinforced soil structures with geosynthetics. The stresses and deformations at any point within the reinforced soil structure can be determined by the proposed model.
