Abstract

This paper updates a paper presented in 1987 at a meeting of the Texas section of the American Society of Civil Engineers. The 15-foot high, Reinforced Earth® Wall was constructed in 1981 to remediate slope instability at a site underlain by clay/concrete rubble fill to a depth of approximately 24 feet below the top of the wall. Additional data are presented on vertical and horizontal movements measured along the middle portion of the 350-foot long wall which has exhibited the most movements.
