oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Drainage management behind mechanically stabilised earth walls

Volume 18, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



One method of designing and constructing a retaining wall is using mechanically stabilised earth. A number of similar technologies fall under the heading of mechanically stabilised earth walls (MSEW s), each claiming to be distinct or having a particular advantage, but essentially performing or using similar theory in their respective design processes. The application of all MSEW technology relies on good construction practice, careful selection of backfill soil, compaction and moisture control without neglecting drainage management.
