Summary:
This report presents the construction and performance evaluation of the Louisiana Transportation Research Center reinforced-soil test wall. The 20 ft high, 160 ft long wall was constructed using low quality backfill. Its vertical front facing was constructed with modular blocks. It consisted of three sections reinforced with various geogrid reinforcement types and spacing. The backside of the wall was a one-to-one  Read more...

Abstract:

This report presents the construction and performance evaluation of the Louisiana Transportation Research Center reinforced-soil test wall. The 20 ft high, 160 ft long wall was constructed using low quality backfill. Its vertical front facing was constructed with modular blocks. It consisted of three sections reinforced with various geogrid reinforcement types and spacing. The backside of the wall was a one-to-one slope reinforced with woven and non-woven geotextiles. The test wall was constructed to evaluate the design procedure and performance of geosynthetic-reinforced structures constructed with marginal silty-clay backfill over soft clay foundation. The instrumentation program consisted of monitoring wall deformation, foundation settlement, strains in the reinforcement, vertical and horizontal stresses in the soil, and pore water pressure under the wall. Results of the monitoring program from construction through four months after completion of the wall are detailed in this report.
