Strength and Deformation Analysis of MSE Walls at Working Loads

Phase 5 will (1) construct and test two full-scale walls with non-select fill, (2) update the report on the physical testing of walls 1 through 11 (tested in phases 1 through 4) based on the experience with the instrumented SR 18 walls in Washington state, and (3) update the numerical modeling of walls 1 through 11 and carry out a parametric analyses. Phase 6 will (1) construct and test one full-scale wall with non-select fill, (2) perform data reduction, interpretation, numerical modeling, parametric analysis, and report on the physical testing of the two walls constructed in Phase 5, (3) perform data reduction, interpretation, numerical modeling, parametric analysis, and report on the physical testing of the wall constructed in Phase 6, (4) investigate the effect of material type on in-soil stiffness,( 5) update the K-Stiffness method based on results from the walls constructed in Phases 5 and 6 and to include seismic design, and 6) produce a final report on Phases 1 through 6.
