oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Major mechanically stabilised earth projects

Volume 19, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



Experience has shown that mechanically stabilised earth techniques find application in structures of great diversity. Design engineers now seem able to provide economic and aesthetically acceptable solutions for an increasing range of structures in order to meet specified technical, environmental and sustainability requirements. In the recent past the South African Reinforced Earth company (RESA) has been involved in a number of major projects where the size and nature of the projects demanded not only conformance with standard Reinforced Earth design and procedures, but also created positive advances in the company's administration, design techniques and method of supervision.
