Abstract
Life cycle assessment (LCA) is recognised as a powerful technique to determine the environmental impact component of sustainability assessments of structures in civil engineering projects at the time of design. This paper explains the principal parts and stages in an LCA methodology and demonstrates the approach using the examples of two conventional retaining wall types (gravity and cantilever type) and two mechanically stabilised earth (MSE) wall solutions using steel and polymeric soil reinfo...
