Abstract

Reinforced earth wall has widely been adopted due to its economy, ease in construction and flexibility in nature. Keeping in view its nature being flexible, a pseudo static analysis has been carried out for the complete analysis and design of a reinforced earth wall having uniform surcharge on the wall and backfill. Both horizontal and vertical seismic forces have been taken into account to develop non-dimensional design charts. Use of these design charts has been illustrated by an example design.
