ISSMGE TC218 Special Issue on Reinforced Fill Structures Published

International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories
An official journal of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering ‌
Issue 2 of Volume 7 is a Special Issue organized by the ISSMGE Technical Committee TC218 on “Reinforced Fill Structures” and presents six well-documented case studies combining different reinforced fill structures in terms of application (simple walls, slopes, railway and highway embankments, bridge abutments, back-to-back walls, and arch bridges), environment (including urban), backfill (including marginal soils), facing type (masonry blocks, wrapped, welded wire mesh, and precast concrete panels), and reinforcement material (geogrids, polymeric straps, steel ladders and meshes). Different design method approaches and a wide range of wall heights appear in the case studies presented. Thus, most reinforced fill structure types are well-represented in this Special Issue, covering many companies and systems, both well-established and newer, providing a good representation of the market.
