Geosynthetic-reinforced soil structures for railways and highways in Japan

Geosynthetic-reinforced soil retaining walls (GRS-RWs) have been constructed for a total length of more than 130 km for mainly railways, including high-speed train lines, as well as for highways. With these GRS RWs, a full-height rigid (FHR) facing is constructed after a full-height wrapped-around geosynthetic-reinforced soil walls has been constructed and the major residual deformation …more
