      Most geosynthetic and metallic reinforced soil walls are designed assuming that the wall foundation is rigid and/or does not influence the magnitude and distribution of reinforcement loads under operational conditions. ...
    • Numerical study of the use of actively-tensioned polymeric strips for reinforced soil walls 

      Puig Damians, Ivan; Bathurst, Richard; Lima, Juan; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro (Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), 2015)
      Conference report

      Polymeric strip reinforced soil walls require a practical method to fix the reinforcement tail-ends in the soil backfill during construction to ensure adequate anchorage and to avoid any slack along the linear reinforcement ...
    • Sustainability assessment of earth retaining wall structures: preliminary model and simplified application 

      García Adroguer, Eduard; Puig Damians, Ivan; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro; Lloret Morancho, Antonio; Bathurst, Richard (2015)
      Conference report
