Nabi Khan, Iqraz and Saran, Swami and Peter Diman, Caroline (2005) Designing reinforced earth wall for seismic areas / Iqraz Nabi Khan, Swami Saran and Caroline Peter Diman. Esteem Academic Journal, 2. pp. 9-26. ISSN 1675-7939

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.
