Abstract
The performance of a metallic reinforced soil segmental retaining wall is examined in a systematic manner using two numerical modelling approaches. Finite element modelling was carried out using the commercial program PLAXIS and finite difference modelling using the commercial program FLAC. Numerical model results using both approaches were compared against measurements recorded for a well-instrumented full-scale 3.6-m high wall constructed with a sand backfill, modular-block facing, and steel r...
