This one-of-a-kind reference evaluates the efficacy, stability, and strength of various soil walls, slopes, and structures enhanced by geosynthetic materials. Offering stimulating contributions from more than 50 leading specialists in the field, Reinforced Soil Engineering compiles recent innovations in design layout, controlled construction, and geosynthetic material implementation for improved cost-efficiency, maintenance, and functioning in civil engineering applications. The book focuses on geotechnical earthquake issues and case histories from countries including the United States, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Turkey, and other European nations.Although some research shows less particle size effects on the performance of reinforced earth structures, the available ... and tensile strains of the reinforcements than small-scale centrifuge tests, although there are limitations in the similitude of 1-g models explained above. ... Using the observed results, they discuss the applicability of current design methods against strong seismic motions like the 1995anbsp;...
