Abstract

In geotechnical and transportation engineering, especially road constructions in cuts and deep excavation problems are solved by using different supporting excavation methods. Soil reinforcements are chosen due to easy and economic application. In this study, behavior of supported slopes with geotextiles and geogrids were analyzed by performing experiments on slope models in the laboratory. In the experiments, a static loading was applied to find failure surface and deformations for each case. Additionally, slopes were designed by using Plaxis program. At the end of the study, experimental and analytic models were compared and also behavior of models were presented.
