Is it true that geotextiles can improve the bearing capacity of soil foundations?
Geotextile is a new type of building material, its main raw materials are polyester, polyester, polypropylene and other polymer synthetic fibers. Generally speaking, geotextile has the outstanding advantages of high strength, anti-aging, acid and alkali resistance, good flexibility, convenient construction, low investment and high efficiency.
At present, the most commonly used geotextiles in engineering are polyester staple fiber geotextiles and polyester filament geotextiles.
In engineering construction, geotextiles can effectively prevent the mixing of soil and materials, thereby avoiding the mixing of different materials or soil erosion, thereby protecting soft soil foundations. Secondly, the geotextile can make the water flow freely and without pressure, but it can prevent the loss of fine soil particles, thus avoiding the instability and erosion of some projects. Laying a geotextile filter layer between the embankment and the protective masonry can prevent soil erosion and river bank collapse. Geotextiles can spread the vehicle load over a larger area, reducing the load pressure on the foundation. Under the load, the soft soil foundation will deform.
Because the geotextile has certain toughness and ductility, the geotextile will be deformed and embedded in the soil foundation, so that the whole system will form a continuous structure, improve the stability of the structure, and improve the bearing capacity of the soil foundation.
