Soil arching is a phenomenon that occurs where granular soil is able to span voids. This mechanism can be utilised within structures, such as an embankment supported on piles, which, in turn, can reduce material and construction costs of infrastructure. This research provides insights into soil arching in piled embankments, highlighting that soil arching is a deformation dependent mechanism, much more complex than previously considered.
