In addition, harnessing the result of stress ratio method, an ultimate embankment height can be computed, only if the ultimate bearing capacity of subsoil could be known by static load experiment or area ratio method.

In engineering practice,the current methods in determining the allowable bearing capacity of subsoil are based on either thesettlement or yielding criterion.

Under the retaining wall of the east section the geology condition is poor and the basic bearing capacity of subsoil is low, which cann't meet the demands of the basis stresses, therefore, we used the quick lime soil paking piles technic to strengthen subsoil.

Bearing Capacity of Subsoil with a Layer of Reinforced Earth.

In engineering practice,the current methods in determining the allowable bearing capacity of subsoil are based on either thesettlement or yielding criterion.In calculating the settlement,especially in high allowable values,the corresponding footingpressure may be greater than the proportional limit P_0. This willlead the results deviating from the linear elastic assumption.Sofar as the critical load p_(1/4) is concernd,it is well known thatthere exists contradiction between elastic and yielding state.Forthis...

In engineering practice,the current methods in determining the allowable bearing capacity of subsoil are based on either thesettlement or yielding criterion.In calculating the settlement,especially in high allowable values,the corresponding footingpressure may be greater than the proportional limit P_0. This willlead the results deviating from the linear elastic assumption.Sofar as the critical load p_(1/4) is concernd,it is well known thatthere exists contradiction between elastic and yielding state.Forthis reason,it is superior to adapt the nonlinear constitutiverelationship in evaluating the mechanical behaviour of subsoil insettlement ord yielding aspect.The characteristics of the allowablebearing capacity with nonlinear assumptions is exposed in thispaper based on bearing plate model test

All the longth of Jingtong Expressway is as ling as 18.34km. The west section of it is 11.36km long and east is 6.98km long.Under the retaining wall of the east section the geology condition is poor and the basic bearing capacity of subsoil is low, which cann't meet the demands of the basis stresses, therefore, we used the quick lime soil paking piles technic to strengthen subsoil. This technic is often used to strengthen soft ground in construction engineering.A detail discussion that the quick lime soil packing technic is used to strengthen soft ground of retaining wall of highway has been given in this article,such as design, construction and examination etc. This technic makes raw subsoil's allowable bearing capacity improved from 140-160 kpa over which can meet the demands of design. It has been testified that the technic of quick lime soil packing piles is feasible to strengthen subsoil saturaled soil under retaining wall ground of highway. The construction is easy and safety, and its economic benefit is also high. This technic will make good conditions for highway engineering construction and open up a new way for strengthening soft ground of highway retaining wall.
