Practical application of reinforced earth theory

The practical applications of reinforced earth evolved from extensive research and development work in France by Vidal and the lCPC in the early 1960's. Since then the use of the technique has become established in many other countries, including Australia. Design procedures for reinforced earth including analysis of internal and external stability have been adapted for Australian conditions. Specific areas such as friction behaviour and service life prediction are described. The practical solution of typical problems using reinforced earth is illustrated by projects recently completed in Australia. Possible areas of future application are introduced. (A)
