AbstractGeosynthetics have become well established construction materials for geotechnical applications in most parts of the world. Because they constitute manufactured materials, new products and applications are developed on a routine basis to provide solutions to routine and critical problems alike. Results from recent research and from monitoring of instrumented structures throughout the years have led to new design methods for different applications of geosynthetics. Because of the significant breath of geosynthetics applications, this paper focuses on recent advances on geosynthetics products, applications and design methodologies for reinforced soil using geosynthetics reinforced walls.
