STABILENKA FABRIC REINFORCED SOIL RETAINING WALL AT HEWETTS QUAY, BARKING . REINFORCED EMBANKMENTS. THEORY AND PRACTICE. PROCEEDINGS OF THE CONFERENCE REINFORCED EMBANKMENTS, THEORY AND PRACTICE IN THE BRITISH ISLES, ORGANISED BY MMG CIVIL ENGINEERING SYSTEMS, HELD AT CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY, SEPTEMBER 27 1989

A reinforced soil retaining wall was built in 1985/86 across an old dock in the tidal Barking Creek. It incorporates a variety of geosynthetics and natural fabric (hessian) sandbags as temporary face support and a novel form of wrap-around face construction. The main reinforcement is Stabilenka 150 woven polyester fabric. The temporary face of the soil block formed by the wrap-around construction acted as the back shutter for 200 mm thick in situ concrete facing panels. These are tied back to the soil block by cast-in polymer grid strips buried between envelopes of the limestone aggregate fill. (Author/TRRL)
