|Abstract:||For constructing the roads on soft grounds, basal geogrid-reinforced pile-supported embankments are a suitable solution over other conventional ground improvement techniques like preloading, embankment slope flattening, removing and replacing the soft soil, etc. Many studies are available on these basal geogrid-reinforced piled embankments to understand their behaviour under static loading conditions. But it is necessary to understand the behaviour of these geogrid-reinforced piled embankments under seismic excitations. Hence, finite element analysis of three-dimensional models of embankment having crest width of 20 m, height above ground of 6 m, with side slopes of 1V:1.5H consisting of pulverized fuel ash, overlying soft marine clay of 28 m thickness is carried out under seismic excitations corresponding to Zone III (IS:1893). Soft marine clay layer is improved by the addition of piles arranged in square grid pattern with 5.75% area replacement ratio. Geogrid with a tensile modulus of 4600 kN/m is used as the basal reinforcement. Initially, the embankment is analyzed without geogrid reinforcement and pile supports. Then, it is analyzed with (i) Basal geogrid (ii) With pile supports (iii) With basal geogrid and pile supports. The influence of various parameters of the embankment on maximum crest displacements, differential settlements at crest, toe horizontal displacements, stresses at pile head and foundation soil between piles and pile bending moment along the depth at peak acceleration are studied. Analysis of results shows that the embankment supported over piles with basal geogrid reinforcement will experience less crest settlements, differential settlements at crest and toe horizontal displacements due to earthquake load. © 2020, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.|
