Bearing Characteristics of Waste Fishing Net - Reinforced Sand With Different Embedded Depths Ha, Yong-Soo; Kim, Yun-Tae;
Geosynthetics such as geogrids or geotextiles have been widely used to improve the bearing capacity of soft ground. This study investigated the California bearing ratio (CBR) of waste fishing net (WFN)-reinforced sand. CBR tests were carried out to evaluate the improvement in the bearing capacity of WFN-reinforced sand with different embedded depths. The experimental results indicated that the CBR increased as the embedded depth of the WFN decreased. The bearing capacity ratio (BCR) is the ratio of the bearing capacity of reinforced ground to that of unreinforced ground. The BCR at the penetration depths of 2.5 mm, 5 mm, and the peak point decreased with an increase in the embedded depth.
