Design and Construction Monitoring of Surcharged Embankment

This project is using existing and newly collected case history data to: (1) develop design guidance for determining the amount of surcharge required in terms of embankment settlement performance goals; (2 recommend the appropriate type of laboratory testing program to support the surcharge design; (3) recommend in situ methods that may be coupled with laboratory testing to assist in developing the design; and (4) develop methods to monitor and release surcharge fills that are consistent with the design data and project performance goals.
