Experimental Development of New Type Reinforced Soil Wall
Keywords:Reinforced Soil, Pile Foundation, Retaining Wall, Rock-fall Protection Structure
Our aim in this study is to develop a new type of reinforced soil walls as substitute for concrete ones. The structure that piles are inserted into reinforced soil wall body has been studied as the new type structure. In this development, a static-loading test, a dynamic centrifuge model test and an impact-loading test were carried out in order to confirm the practicability of the structure to actual diverse sites. In this paper, the details of the static and impact loading tests are introduced and the practicability of the structure is discussed.
