Abstract

A 1630-foot long "reinforced earth" wall varying in height from 5 to 35 feet was constructed for Interstate 95 Project (1980) to serve as a sound barrier for the Society Hill area of Philadelphia. This case history describes the methods of special laboratory testing used for the selection of granular backfill, the details of construction control and the special field pullout testing for the performance evaluation of the wall.
