Bamboo for reinforced earth walls

A model reinforced earth wall of height 1.0m has been tested in laboratory. The wall was instrumented to measure the stress distribution in reinforcing strips for the surcharge free loading and surcharge loading conditions. Wooden panels were used as skin elements, bamboo strips as reinforcement and sand as backfill soil. The test results indicated that Rankine's theory gives earth pressure quite close to the observed one and therefore it may be adopted for design.
