Abstract

Embankments constructed on hillsides can have serious problems of stability, generally created by the action of water com-bined with the inclination of the hillside. In order to increase the stability or correct problems of instability already present, there are various methods that can be used: surface and deep drainage, reinforcements with anchored beams, medium and large diameter piles, etc. Standing out among these systems (for its versatility) is the use of micropiles which ?sew? the embankment to a non-unstable area of the hillside. This paper presents research undertaken by means of a finite element code for studying the effect and stress of the micropiles, comparing the results with real measurements taken in the south of Spain.
