Paper Abstract

The state-of-the art of lateral deformation in soft ground under embankment is reviewed in this paper. The problem is usually investigated using the relationship between the maximum lateral deformation and settlement of embankment center. The calculated model is established with finite element method. The computed results show that, during the loading period ▵ym=▵S and during the period of consolidation ▵ym=0.15▵S, where ▵ym and ▵S are the increment of lateral deformation and settlement respectively. The loading consequences also affect the ratio. The effect of parameters of soft soil on lateral deformation is discussed. The calculated results are helpful to the research on the behavior of the lateral deformation.
