Ecological Engineering Trench Inspection and Foundation Reinforcement in the New Era
The structure layer of geocell reinforced with macadam, as well as effectiveness and practicality of such a method in foundation reinforcement during work progress of civil engineering is studied in this paper. Basic theory and method about foundation reinforcement structure applied in work process of civil engineering have been studied. Physical model of experimental tank built by loaded plates has been established. Experiments have been conducted on the loaded-plate tank for geocells in different specification and filler in the geocell to determine the relationship between loads at various of structure layers and longitudinal travel. Experimental results showed that structure layer of geocell reinforced with macadam could improve vertical deformation in a better way, whose efficiency became smaller along with weld spacing of geocell getting larger within a certain range. Besides, specification of the filler also imposed effects onto the reinforcement efficiency, where filler with larger particle diameter brought about better reinforcement effects. The experimental results demonstrated rationality and effectiveness of structure layer of geocell reinforced with macadam and provided staff members responsible for civil engineering construction with reference on selecting the foundation reinforcement scheme.
