Engineered Structures are vertical mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) or reinforced soil structures consisting of soil and multiple layers of geosynthetic reinforcement elements to significantly improve the strength of the soil structure.
Geosynthetics are an integral pa MSE’s such as: retaining walls, slopes, and embankments. Geogrids and High Stength geotextiles provide tensile resistance to the soil, allowing the construction of walls, slopes, and embankments cost-effectively and quickly.
- Retaining Walls
- Steepened Slopes
Retaining Walls, both temporary and permanent, are constructed through the use of geosynthetics and geogrids as the facing to segmental concrete blocks. This process not only has aesthetic appeal but is economical and efficient.
To steepen soil slopes, geosynthetics are layered to enhance stability and provide tensile resistance. This method can be utilized to create slopes of any height at any angle with slope facing constructed of grass or other materials.
Geosynthetics are placed at the base of embankments to provide stability and impair differential settlement. The product can be placed directly on a soft foundation, over piles, or over areas to void formation prior to placement of the embankment fill.
