Today, Reinforced Earth is used extensively throughout the world. It is well suited to a range of site conditions, both dry land and marine. Applications include retaining walls bridge abutments, slot bunkers. dykes and slope stability.

Reinforced Earth is a composite material formed by the interaction of a non - cohesive granular soil with high adherence polyester geogrid.
The primary function of the tensile reinforcement in a reinforced soil structure is to resists the interal lateral earth pressure so that the soil reinforced behaves as a stable coherent gravity mass. The soil and geogrid reinforcement combine through friction and produce an integrated mass in which the reinforcements carry the tensile stresses.

The Principal of reinforced Earth :

Reinforced Earth is a composite material formed by the interaction of a non - cohesive granular soil with high adherence polyester geogrid. The primary function of the tensile reinforcement in a reinforced soil structure is to resists the interal lateral earth pressure so that the soil reinforced behaves as a stable coherent gravity mass.

The soil and geogrid reinforcement combine through friction and produce an integrated mass in which the reinforcements carry the tensile stresses. In this way the earth mass tends to act as a cohesive monolithic body, supporting its own weight as well as the external for which it has been designed.

Most of the projects required an extended design life of 75 to 120-years. The reinforcing agents which are geogrids are placed as required in the backfill and are connected to the concrete wall facing.


The system provides a number of significant advantages :

It reduces site development costs as compared with more conventional structures.
A high resistance to static and dynamic loads.
Ability to adapt to deformations in the sub grade.
Simple and rapid erection, therefore large savings in projects execution time
  No special formwork required.
  No heavy equipments required.
  Ease of construction in inaccessible sites.
It utilizes on site soil.
Offers a more dependable and proven technology.
It maximizes the land use which is the most importa-nt economic factor in all segments of land develop -met such as residential commercial as well industrial projects.
