Abstract

Middle-shallow layer goaf left after the excavation of small coal mines in expansive soil areas always brings much trouble to expressway construction, the section of K21 +400~K22 +550 of Nanning outer ring expressway under construction faces such a situation. Based on the grasp of geological condition of the goaf, related national technical specifications and existing technical research about treatment, the dynamic compaction with geogird reinforcement method is applied to settle the roadbed with a good result showed in the field testing. This paper introduces the geological condition and stability evaluation of the goaf, and emphatically presents the technical note, construction procedure, quality inspection of the dynamic compaction with geogird reinforcement and the filling method of the upper expansive soil subgrade, which can offer a reference for the similar treatment projects in other expansive soil areas.

Treating the Expansive Soil Subgrade on the Goaf of Middle-Shallow Layer by Dynamic Compaction With Geogrid Reinforcement

Chicago, Illinois

Middle-shallow layer goaf left after the excavation of small coal mines in expansive soil areas always brings much trouble to expressway construction, the section of K21 +400~K22 +550 of Nanning outer ring expressway under construction faces such a situation. Based on the grasp of geological condition of the goaf, related national technical specifications and existing technical research about treatment, the dynamic compaction with geogird reinforcement method is applied to settle the roadbed with a good result showed in the field testing. This paper introduces the geological condition and stability evaluation of the goaf, and emphatically presents the technical note, construction procedure, quality inspection of the dynamic compaction with geogird reinforcement and the filling method of the upper expansive soil subgrade, which can offer a reference for the similar treatment projects in other expansive soil areas.
