Terre Armée offers engineered solutions for the construction of embankments using geosythetic reinforcements.
An embankment is an engineered earth fill that forms a raised structure. The structure consists of two side slopes and a core of the same fill material, generally comprised of non-cohesive soils. The stability of an embankment constructed on soft soil is governed mostly by the shearing resistance of the foundation. This condition challenges engineers to properly address and mitigate the lack of adequate bearing capacity below the embankment. Terre Armée geosynthetic reinforcements provide engineers and builders with a cost effective solution to assure long-term stability of built embankments by controlling settlement and deformation.
