Whether you're designing for tall gravity walls, for heavy live loads with a mechanically stabilized earth wall
using the Positive Connection blocks, or for the benefits of a large batter wall, Redi-Rock has solutions for just about every application."
Addressing first supported excavations and then mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls, the 93 selected and refereed papers examine such topics as recommendations for assessing bending moments for stiff wall systems, results of an instrumented helical soil nail wall, the design and construction of circular cofferdams for earth retention in a flyash disposal basin, mobilizing reinforcement tension with geosynthetic-reinforced soil structures, the collapse of mechanically stabilized earth wall
panels due to the effects of freezing temperatures, the seismic design of retaining walls, a three-dimensional analysis of the construction process for tunneling Donghu Metro Station in Guangzhou, and prehistoric landslide stabilization with ground anchors and surface reaction pads.
The 28 invited papers present the results of centrifuge tests modeling rigid circular piled rafts lying on sand, small-scale testing conducted on mechanically stabilized earth walls
reinforced with geogrids, and analyzing post- installation dynamic load test data for capacity evaluation of deep foundations.
