Use of reinforcement is one of the oldest and widely used methods to improve the response of soil due to loads acting on it. Apart from the use of reinforcement, placing a granular bed over the poor soil is also commonly practiced ground improvement techniques. In the present study, the effect of combination of use of reinforcement and replacement of existing poor soil with a competent soil layer on the load-settlement response is studied. Two types of reinforcement- geogrid and road mesh-were used and a 100mm thick aggregate layer was laid over sand to study the improvement in the load carrying capacity.
