Limit Design Approach of the Reinforced Soils

M. Vaníček

Abstract


Since now the design of slope stability was calculated by means of safety ratio, but nowadays we are going to change this approach to limit states - according to Eurocode 7. For the limit states approach it is necessary to define design values not only of soil properties but also of reinforcing elements. The proposed calculation method of the slope stability using limit states approach was transferred into a computer program SVARG. By this program it is possible to calculate the internal and external stability of reinforced earth structure. The principles of the selected calculation method and examples of stability calculations are presented hereafter.
