Abstract(s)The reinforcement of soil is defined as an effective and reliable technique to improve strength and stability. For this propose, the use of natural fibers has been commonly. Over the past years, a series of studies have been performed in order to investigate the influence of randomly oriented fibers, especially for compressible clayey soils. However, less attention has been given to the reinforcing of sandy materials, as well as the use of oriented fibers meshes in order to improve mechanical behaviour. The main aim of this study is to identify the influence that different percentages of fibers, as well as the use of meshes of oriented fibers, has on soil mechanical behaviour. For this purpose, unconfined compression tests with local strain measurements were performed on a silty sand reinforced with Sisal fibers and a comparative study between randomly oriented and 0° and 90° fibers is presented.
