Design Guideline Basal Reinforced Piled Embankments

Revision of the Design Guideline CUR226

This publication is the design guideline (CUR226) for geosynthetic-reinforced pile-supported embankments.

A basal reinforced piled embankment consists of a reinforced embankment on a pile foundation. The reinforcement consists of one or more horizontal layers of geosynthetic reinforcement installed at the base of the embankment.

A basal reinforced piled embankment can be used for the construction of a road or a railway when a traditional construction method would require too much construction time, affect vulnerable objects nearby or give too much residual settlement, making frequent maintenance necessary.

This publication is a guideline for the design of basal reinforced piled embankments. The guideline covers the following subjects: A survey of the requirements and the basic principles for the structure as a whole; some instructions for the pile foundation and the pile caps; design rules for the embankment with the basal geosynthetic reinforcement; extensive calculation examples; finite element calculations; construction details and management and maintenance of the piled embankment. The guideline includes many practical tips. The design guideline is based on state-of-the-art Dutch research, which was conducted in co-operation with many researchers from different countries.

  • Offering the most reliable and complete guideline available for the design of basal reinforced piled embankments
  • Featuring the most up-to-date insights in the behaviour of basal reinforced piled embankments, including the Concentric Arches model
  • Extensive calculation examples are included
  • Providing construction details and many practical tips
