Abstract

In the past there were conflicting reports about the scaling effect of reinforcement strength for the geosynthetic reinforced earth wall (GREW) at failure in centrifugal tests. In this study a series of centrifugal modeling tests are then performed in an attempt to clarify such discrepancies. From the test results, it is found that, in studying the behavior of geosynthetic reinforced earth wall, the reinforcement strength does not need to be scaled. The insertion of reinforcement will cause the distribution of lateral earth pressure deviating from the one assumed in the guideline. Thus, a further investigation is needed to unveil the true distribution of soil stress in the reinforced zone.
