Composite Behavior of Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil Mass

CHAPTER 7. SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS

 

7.1 SUMMARY

This study investigated the composite behavior of a GRS mass. It focused on the strength of a GRS mass, CIS in a GRS mass, the lateral deformation of a GRS wall with modular block facing, and the development of a rational design procedure for determining the required reinforcement strength of a GRS wall by considering both lateral stresses in the fill and lateral wall deformation of the wall system.

The following tasks were carried out:

7.2 FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS

The findings and conclusions of this study are as follows:
