PREDICTING THE BEHAVIOUR OF REINFORCED SOIL STRUCTURES ---PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON THEORY AND PRACTICE OF EARTH REINFORCEMENT, FUKUOKA, KYUSHU, JAPAN, 5-7 OCTOBER 1988

The paper considers the factors which influence the behaviour of reinforced soil structures and gives details of the computer prediction which won a NATO competition held in Canada in 1987. Information on parameter selection and results not previously published are provided. In addition, the advantages of the use of finite element models in the design and analysis of reinforced soil is discussed, particularly, with regard to their ability to take into account the influence of different construction techniques and the presence of weak subsoils, both of which are recognised as being of major significance in determining the behaviour of this form of structure.(a) for the covering abstract of the symposium see IRRD 818063.
