Abstract

Generally, soilbags are widely used in temporary structures in the case of emergency or building constructions as a temporary engineering material. Previous applications are mostly based on experiences rather than the knowledge of its mechanical behavior and operation principles from the view of engineering mechanics. In this paper, the mechanism of soilbags is first addressed from the mechanical principles. Followed are an introduction of design concepts and applications for soilbags, including mechanical tests on single soilbags, researches and corresponding knowledge, and practical applications of stacked soilbags.
