NOW--RETAINING WALLS OF "REINFORCED EARTH"

Vertical earth retaining walls based on a new concept of design and construction are described. The process involves the use of long, thin, galvanized metal strips which are laid horizontally in layers throughout an earth embankment to withstand the tensile and shearing stresses. Along the vertical wall, the strips are attached to light half-circle tubes of steel or concrete facing which fix the distance between the layers of strips and prevent erosion.
