Project Outline CHAPTER 1 Introduction CHAPTER 2 Literature Review of Soil Reinforcement CHAPTER 3 Mechanically Stabilized Retaining Wall CHAPTER 4 Design of Conventional Retaining Wall

CHAPTER 5 Design of Mechanically Stabilized Retaining Wall. CHAPTER 6 Quantities and Cost Comparison General View Reinforced earth is an expression

used by specialized soil

reinforcement companies that refers to the combination of geotechnical and structural engineering principles. History of Soil Reinforcement Modern Structures

The modern concept of the soil reinforcement and soil structure was proposed by Casagrande.

The modern form of earth reinforcement was introduced by Vidal in the 1960s. Vidals concept Application of

Soil Reinforcement There are many applications of soil reinforcement such as : 1) Bridge abutments. 2) Bridge abutments with piled

bankseat. 3) Sloping bridge abutments. 4) Embankments. 5) Dams. Bridge abutment

Advantages and Disadvantages of Soil Reinforcement Advantages of Soil Reinforcement

1. Allow in-situ strengthening on existing slope surface. 2. Allow excellent working space in front of the excavation face. 3. Avoid unnecessary temporary works. 4. Only requires light machinery and equipment.

Disadvantages of Soil Reinforcement 1. Less suitable for course grained soil and soft clayey soil. 2. Suitable only for excavation above groundwater. Mechanically
