PERFORMANCE STUDY OF A COMBINED ANCHORED EARTH AND GEOTEXTILE SYSTEM OF REINFORCED SOIL. REINFORCED SOIL AND GEOTEXTILES, PROCEEDINGS OF THE GEOTEXTILES CONFERENCE HELD AT THE INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, BOMBAY, INDIA, DECEMBER 8-9, 1988

The performance of a combined Anchored Earth and Geotextile system of earth reinforcement as proposed recently (Singh & Finlay, 1986) was studied, and is reported in this paper. Semi-Z shaped mild steel model anchors alternating with a synthetic geotextile in depth were used in a test box and loaded. The end results of the tests presented in the paper demonstrate that the combined system is characterized by a fairly high rigidity and high holding capacity. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 836241. (Author/TRRL)
