Abstract

This study evaluated the effects of single, double, and triple reinforcing layers on the bearing capacity ratio (BCR) of strip footing on a sand slope system. Seventy-two laboratory-loading tests were conducted on a stripfooting model on a reinforced sand slope. Moreover, this study illustrated the effects of the different parameters of two reinforcing layers on the bearing capacity of a double-reinforced sand slope. The BCR increased from 1.06 to 3.00 for single-reinforced slope soils, 1.09 to 7.73 for double-reinforced slope soils, and up to 8.00 for three-layered reinforced systems. For double-reinforced soil slopes, the most effective spacing between the two reinforcing layers is 0.3 B.
