Title of the thesis:
Analysis of selected ground improving methods for embankments during roads and highways construction
The presented thesis is focused on soil improvement of highly compressible soils. The paper summarizes soil improvement methods used during the road and embankments construction in Slovakia. In the areas of Neogene sediments in Slovakia, adverse strength-deformation properties of clay layers in combination with groundwater pressure in sandy layers present a relatively high risk for the preparation and construction of cuts and embankments, as documented by examples in this paper. The case studies are situated on the construction sites on expressways in Slovakia, expressway R2 Ruskovce – Pravotice. In order to illustrate clay improvements, three of the most frequently used methods in Slovakia and case studies on ground improvement are presented. Efficiency of different improvement methods based on the results of geotechnical monitoring is analysed for comparable engineering-geological and hydrogeological conditions.
Key words:
embankment, geotechnical design, stone columns, ground improvement
