Evalution on stress distribution, deformation rate in embankment and soft soil reinforced concrete pile combined geotextile below the embankments in geological conditions Mekong delta

Anh Tuan Nguyen, Tuan Phuong Nguyen

Abstract


With the rapid growth of the economy and the trend of industrialization and mordenization of the country, the demand of  developing buildings, factories and other infrastructures in Vietnam increases, especially in the Mekong Delta area. Because of the geological structure property of Mekong Delta is mainly soft soil, the foundation depth can vary from 30 to 40m. To meet the demand of infrastructure development, there some studies and researches done recently on this geological structure.

The evaluation and analysis on stress distribution, ground deformation and reinforced concrete and geotextile treatment on soft soil is extremely essential to find the new solution to improve the quality of foundation in Mekong Delta area. The main content of the paper is evalution stress distribution, deformation rate  in embankment and soft soil reinforced concrete pile combined geotextile below the embankments in geological conditions in Mekong delta by finite element method to Geotechnique-designer have to notice the correlation of rational pile-distance and embankment-depth when design weak foundation.
