|GP: New constructions and materials of railway substructure and superstructure - Czech|
The project concentrates on the methodology of calculating the bearing capacity of railway substructure containing geosynthetic materials. The design will be based especially on the experimentally tested positive effects of geosynthetics upon the bearing capacity of the construction layers. Verification of the effectiveness of reinforcing the construction layers on soft subgrade will be carried out in the testing field (geotechnical laboratory testing field GLTF).
Differentiation of effectiveness of various types of geosynthetics in dependence on their kind (type) will enable more effective designing of the reinforcement of the construction layer of the railway substructure.
Planned Course and Objectives:
* Evaluation of the experience (collected both in this country and abroad) concerning determination of the benefit brought about by geosynthetic materials, and concerning design methods of determining the bearing capacity of railway substructure construction layers
