Abstract: Although relatively weak in tension, soil is powerful enough in compression. Tensile elements are inserted into the soil as part of the soil reinforcement method to increase stability and reduce deformation. For use in building, a wide range of reinforcing materials have been created, including metal strips, bar mats, sheets of geotextile, geogrids, etc. Over the past few decades, reinforced soil technologies have been widely employed in the building of (railway formation, highway embankments, earth dams and retaining walls). The primary purpose of the geotextiles, which are used as reinforcement, is to give soil tensile strength at a strain level consistent with the functionality of the soil structure. The fibres and cloth types of textiles, such as woven, knitted, and non-woven, are used as reinforcement.
