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.
