Development a New Design Method for Geosynthetic Reinforced Walls and Slopes

The main objective of this research project will be to formulate a design approach for walls and slopes that are reinforced with geo-reinforcement using the basic analytical framework developed by Weerasekara and Wijewickreme (2010). The intern will participate in the development of this methodology under the direct guidance of Drs. Wijewickreme and Weerasekara. The design approach will be validated by modeling the performance of some of the well-documented reinforced slope/ wall.
