GEOTEXTILE-REINFORCED WALLS SUBJECTED TO UNIFORM SURCHARGE LOADS. REINFORCED SOIL AND GEOTEXTILES, PROCEEDINGS OF THE GEOTEXTILES CONFERENCE HELD AT THE INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, BOMBAY, INDIA, DECEMBER 8-9, 1988

A design procedure for geotextile-reinforced walls which are subjected to uniform surcharge loads is presented. In essence it is an expansion of the procedure introduced by Leshchinsky and Perry (1987) (IRRD 820313). Included are design charts for the internal stability of the walls, stemming from a limit-equilibrium analysis. Given a uniform surcharge load, one can determine the required geotextile tensile resistance as well as its embedment length so that an internally stable wall is attained. For covering abstract of the conference, see IRRD 836241. (Author/TRRL)
