Developing approval criteria for reinforced soil wall systems

Since the expiry of the basic patent on the concept of Reinforced Earth, several new systems have appeared on the Australian market, including VSL Retained Earth, Tensar Geogrids and Websol. The Roads and Traffic Authority of NSW has initiated a study of the available Reinforced Soil Wall Systems (RSWS) in view of developing a system approval procedure. In addition, the steps necessary to ensure the safety of a RSWS have been examined, looking at the role of the authority, the contractor/supplier and the expert consultant.
