Geosynthetic-Reinforced Retaining Walls

Participants: Carlos Vinicius Benjamim

Description: This project involves the monitoring and evaluation of full-scale prototype geotextile-reinforced retaining walls. A total of 8 walls were constructed in the state of São Paulo, Brazil using local soils. Moisture contents, horizontal and vertical internal displacements of the reinforced backfill, and face displacements were monitored.
