Bus wood in Merauke residence much found in around nature. Bus wood also may be used as alternative material to reinforcement at soil which the support capability less well for construction and embankment. The nature of bus wood life in swamp which as soft soil territory may be used as reinforcement material by raft and pole model, it is an innovation in effort to reduce the soil deformation and degradation as uniform settlement. Along with the development the knowledge especially geotechnical field in this case soil reinforcement method has developed with rapid at the last decade either to using conventional material or other material usage. To investigate the effectiveness of raft and pole model of bus wood which able to reducing the soil degradation is used variation model of long pole used. It is expected that result of reinforcement testing model by using the wood bus at laboratory model typical testing able to reducing vertical deformation and support to retaining vertical load result of load given during the testing. Characteristic of soil and bus wood in testing use SNI and ASTM standard. This testing use an Experimental method, testing development is done at laboratory by examining the enforcement laboratory model design at test cases with 240x122x60 cm measurement. Is designed a road embankment model at soft soil by varying the deep of wood bus funnel at 10 cm, 20 cm, 30 cm, and 40 cm deepness which supported the deposit of road body and is tested by the loading plate as load flatted. To investigate the effectiveness of wood bus funnel may reduce the soil degradation. Result of the testing at laboratory scale model show that the enforcement which use bus wood funnel is greatly effective to support the embankment existed on base soil. During the testing the loading, base soil only experience deformation mainly small. While, bus wood funnel may give the significantly enough support to retain the vertical load caused by load given during testing.
