V1.00 software (geotextile reinforced embankment stability analysis) case of:
different heights embankment , different slopes coefficients , good soil or soft
soil, dangerous sliding surface result is the ellipse -shaped face. The center of the
ellipse is determined slip in a position to face the same level of high embankment
. The software program set algorithm to draw lines passing through the point of
distortion has the largest shear strain in embankment (Display > Slip suface
stresses), then use the sliding surface approximation method to test ellipse
equation and copper pointed out countless times in circular slip surfaces assuming
a circular slip surfaces are approximate. In case of arc shape sliding surface is
considered as a special case of the ellipse shape .
The results of this study contribute to further clarify the previous study at home
and abroad [57] , [60] that the slip surface is not circular slip surfaces .

geotextile jet curve behaves as follows :
Jet geotextile in the calculation of load
balancing at each step of the iterative
solution of finite element method is determined by the power curve behavior -
displacement . This curve is constructed from samples geotextile experimental
results ( as shown in the form 3.16 ) . In the first step to finding solutions is the
initial displacement of the system , the stiffness of geotextile to build the stiffness
matrix is the slope of the first straight line from the origin ( if the behavior is
approximately equal to the line segment ) or tangent of the curve ( if the road is
approximately equal to the curve behavior ) at the origin of Ki . After each step
solution , displacement of geotextile be determined Uj and thus determine the
actual jet geotextile was defined as Tj . Secant stiffness is also determined by the
expression : Ktj = Tj / Uj (3.43).
In addition, the program features hnh_ress V1.00 has also established algorithms

Commenting on the results embankment sliding surface slope :
The analytical results and calculate approximate sliding surface embankment

program hnh_ress V1.00 ( Reinforced Embankment Stability Software ) in the
case of the earth embankment embankment on soft soil well and the results are
analyzed dangerous sliding surface slope embankment slip shaped ellipse , the
ellipse center is determined with the same high level causeway . These results
contribute to clarify the previous studies that slip is not circular slip [ 57 ] , [ 60 ] .
As a result of this ellipse shaped slip surfaces will contribute to the research in
order to improve stability calculation ground cover and ground cover
reinforcement .
In case of arc shape sliding surface is considered as a special case of the ellipse
shape sliding surface [ 25 ] .
4.4 Develop formulas tension ( Tmax ) of the geotextile layer in embankment

strength of the geotextile . Thus the tension of geotextiles in ground cover was

determined from stable equilibrium .

method slip surface ellipse .
Because the results analyzed by finite element method can determine the slip

4.8 Findings of chapter 4
1 . Stability analysis results according to the finite element method by hnh_ress
V1.00 software (geotextile reinforced embankment stability analysis) case of:
different heights embankment , different slopes coefficients , good soil or soft
soil, dangerous sliding surface result is the ellipse -shaped face. The center of the
ellipse is determined slip in a position to face the same level of high embankment
. The software program set algorithm to draw lines passing through the point of
distortion has the largest shear strain in embankment (Display > Slip suface
stresses), then use the sliding surface approximation method to test ellipse
equation and copper pointed out countless times in circular slip surfaces assuming
a circular slip surfaces are approximate. In case of arc shape sliding surface is
considered as a special case of the ellipse shape .
The results of this study contribute to further clarify the previous study at home
and abroad [57] , [60] that the slip surface is not circular slip surfaces .
2 . Construction tension expressions (Tmax) - (4.36) of the geotextile layers in
reinforced embankment. Where Tmax is caculated according to form of ellipse
slip surface from the research results, stability analysis by finite element method.
And tension value (Tmax) of the geotextile layer also has built-in hnh-ress
software (Report > Geotextile Forces). .

CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
1.Conclusion
1 - Building a calculation model of the embankment reinforced by geotextile
based on stress - deformability relation of a nonlinear with multiple stages of
geotextile (Robert M Koener) is described closely to working reality of this
material.
2 - The program “hnh_ress V1.00” ( Reinforced Embankment Stability Software )
is built using FEM consistent with calculation standards in the world and Vietnam
. The feature of pull - behavior relationship of geotextile under a elastic and
plastic curve is fully described in the program (Define > Stress - Strain Curve >
Geotextile). Hence, the stiffness of geotextile (EAg), characterized by elastic
modulus (E), is also the slope of this curve.
3 – In the thesis, the author proposes the dangerous sliding surface of reinforced
embankment slope which is in the shape of ellipse. The center of the ellipse is
determined at the position that is as high as embankment surface. By using error
approximation method of sliding surface, testing results of sliding surface in
ellipse shape are the most reasonable. The sliding surface in an arc shape is
considered as a special case of the sliding surface ellipse shape.
4 - From the ellipse shape sliding surface results, analytical expressions and
computer program software (hnh_ress V1.00), (Report > Geotextile Forces) are
developed to calculate the tension Tmax of geotextile layers in reinforced
embankment.
5 – The stiffness of geotextile has affected reinforced embankment stability
safety. The thesis formed the expressions to determine the minimum stiffness of
geotextile (EAg) and charts of the relationship between stiffness of geotextile
(EAg) and elastic mudulus of soil and other factors that affect the embankment
stability safety.
6 - The results were analyzed by the hnh_ress V1.00 software. The safety effects
of high embankment stabilization reinforced by geotextile include:
i . The number of layers and the distance between the geotextile layers can affect
the embankment stability safety factor. With the same number of geotextile layers
, if we increase the distance between the layers to lay the layers of geotextile
along the depth of embankment (from the embankment surface down), the factor
of safety will increase significantly.
- 27 -
ii . Tension values Tmax at every point of the geotextile layers in embankment
(the slope reaches the state of vandalism) are always identified.
iii . The factor of slope influences the safety factor of embankment stability . The
soil selected by table 4.1 and slope factor by Vietnam standard at TCVN 4054-05
does not require the reinforcement of geotextile . Geotextile is used for
strengthening the embankment that is weaker or has greater slope coefficients.
iv . Geotextile intensity (Tmax) and the number of geotextile layers affect the
stability safety factor . The greater geotextile intensity is, the higher the stability
safety factor becomes. The diagrams showing the relations between intensity and
number of geotextile layers that affect the stability safety factor can be used in the
preliminary design of reinforced high embankment.
v . The stiffness of geotextile (EAg) affects the safety factor of embankment
slope. When geotextile is reinforced in the embankment, and the soil has the
elastic modulus Es, we should choose geotextile type with (EAg) minimum
stiffness defined in expression (4.51) to achieve the safety, stability and saving of
material.
2.Recommendations
The author proposes the research findings and proposals to be considered using in
calculation and study about the embankment reinforced by geotextile. The
author’s calculation method should be futher researched and compared to other
calculation methods to find out errors and draw out rules . The method of
calculation may continue to be studied in case of building the embankment
reinforced by geogrids.
