Abstract
This paper extends the numerical parametric study previously reported by the writers for the vertical load distribution and vertical gap compression between facing panel units in steel reinforced soil walls ranging in height from 6 m to 24 m. The presented study demonstrates how gap compression and magnitude of vertical load transmitted between horizontal joints are influenced by joint location along the height of the wall, joint compressibility, and backfill, and foundation soil stiffness. The ...
