Numerical analysis of multilayer reinforced pond ash slope


Harleen Kaur, Gurdeepak Singh, Kulwinder Singh

In the present study, numerical analysis is carried out in which pond ash is been employed as a fill substance in the embankment slope. The main rationale of the current exploration is to scrutinize leading parameters which are accountable for the recital of a typical strip foundation on a pond ash slope with endosure of multiple layers of fortification (geo-grid and geo-jute), and to recommend an appropriate configuration of geo-grid and geo-jute placement. The geo-grid and geo-jute reinforcement used is SGi 040 and DW TWILL respectively. Numerical analysis was conducted using software program PLAXIS 2D to calculate the bearing capacity using different reinforcements. The comparisons are made using two non dimensional parameters i.e. settlement ratio and bearing capacity ratio. The number of multiple layers used are 2, 3, 4 and embedment ratios used for modeling are 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1.0 with De/B as 1, 2.3. From the obtained results it is scrutinized that the bearing capacity is increased with increasing number of reinforced layers and De/B ratio. With increasing z/B ratio, bearing capacity is seen to decrease significantly. The ultimate bearing capacity comes out to be maximum when N=4. The percentage increase in the bearing capacity while using geo-grid as compared to geo-jute is about 18% approximately.
