Information and Instructions for Settlement Predictions at the International Symposium
The International Symposium on Practical Applications of Ground Engineering for Embankments on Soft Soils, 2022 (GEESS2022) shall include an update on the monitored behaviours of the set of prototype scale trials that were featured exclusively at the International Symposium on Trial Embankments on Malaysian Marine Clays, Kuala Lumpur 1989. The prototype scale trials are called the Malaysian Trial Embankments.
This MTE is currently 33 years old and is one of the three known full scale long term experimental embankments on soft clays in the world. This makes MTE one of the rare heritages engineering research site to study the settlement behaviour of embankments on soft clays. The other two such experimental embankment programmes are in Sweden with embankment heights of 2.5m and 2.2m respectively. This makes MTE the only high embankments with respective embankment heights of 3m and 6m. The two world famous Swedish experimental embankments are at Vasby (with 3 trials up to a maximum height of 2.5m) and Ska-Edeby (with 4 trials up to a maximum height of 2.2m).
To encourage an active participation at the Symposium, a settlement prediction exercise is included for interested delegates to the Symposium and invited Predictors. Settlements at the end of June 2022 since surface settlement measurements at the top of the completed embankments commenced in September 1989, are required to be predicted at the centres of the two Control embankments at the Malaysian Trial Embankments program. The results of the predictions shall be announced at GEESS2022 and compared to the settlement values measured at the end of June 2022.
