Abstract

In this paper, the design geogrid/geotextile reinforced retaining walls are summarized. Design of geosynthetics reinforced walls includes internal and external stability analyses. Seismic analyses also considered for design of geosynthetics reinforced walls. Many designers do not have all of the tools required to complete all of the components of the stability analysis for site conditions. Most current geosynthetics reinforced soil retaining wall design software products do not address all of the components of the stability analysis. This paper is directed towards researchers, practitioners, and regulators, and gives guidance for future research and development of codes for reinforced soil walls.

Seismic Design of Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil Walls

New York, New York

In this paper, the design geogrid/geotextile reinforced retaining walls are summarized. Design of geosynthetics reinforced walls includes internal and external stability analyses. Seismic analyses also considered for design of geosynthetics reinforced walls. Many designers do not have all of the tools required to complete all of the components of the stability analysis for site conditions. Most current geosynthetics reinforced soil retaining wall design software products do not address all of the components of the stability analysis. This paper is directed towards researchers, practitioners, and regulators, and gives guidance for future research and development of codes for reinforced soil walls.
