A STUDY ON DESIGN ASPECTS OF REINFORCED EARTH WALL
Keywords:Reinforced Earth wall; Geogrid; stability checks; overturning; sliding
The paper deals with the design of Reinforced Earth wall with Geogrid as reinforcing material at five different heights. The design of reinforced earth wall is based on lateral earth pressure approach. In this design active earth pressure has been calculated and the checks for internal and external stability, overturning, sliding, pullout, shear and connection strength also has been done. The height of the wall is taken up to maximum 10m. The comparison is done between the designs and the impact of change of height. The calculation for the design is done on Microsoft Excel to bring out the better alternative among them. The paper also carries out the importance of Reinforced Earth Wall in the transformation of modern construction.
