A Parametric Study on Behaviour of Geogrid Reinforced Earth Retaining Wall

6 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

Reinforced soil retaining walls have become a conventional practice for economical retaining wall construction. For stability, geosynthetic reinforcement should have ample design strength, located at specific vertical spacing in the reinforced fill. Geosynthetic reinforcement design strengths and vertical spacing are easy to attain. If there are outcrops of heavily over consolidated soils, soft r hard rocks in close vicinity to the retaining wall, the required reinforcement lengths into the reinforced fill may be difficult to achieve. In these circumstances, it becomes impossible to excavate the heavily over consolidated soil or rock. In that case, extent of reinforced fill has to be controlled to protect the wall face alignment which in turn results in short lengths of geosynthetic reinforcement.
