Performance test for Geosynthetic-Reinforced Soil including effects of preloading. (Recent Publications).Publication No. FHWA-RD-01-018
A study was undertaken to investigate the behavior of Geosynthetic-Reinforced Soil (GRS GRS Graduate School (universities)

Significant emphasis was placed on the effects of preloading. To conduct the study, a revised laboratory test, known as the Soil-Geosynthetic Performance (SGP SGP Singapore (ISO Country code)

A series of SGP tests were performed. Different soils and reinforcements were employed, and the soil-geosynthetic composites were subject to various loading sequences. Correlations between the results of SGP tests and full-scale GRS structures were evaluated. It was found that the degree of reduction in settlement due to preloading could be assessed by the SGP tests with very good accuracy. Finite element analyses were performed to examine the stress distribution in the SGP test. The importance of using small reinforcement spacing was evidenced by the stress distribution.

A term lenders commonly use to refer to the habits of borrowers taking out loans to repay the balance on other loans. Often reloading is done to take advantage of lower interest rates offered by other loans, and potential tax benefits. . The SPR model was shown to be able to accurately predict the results obtained from the SGP tests and numerical analysis of automated plane strain reinforcement tests.
