Overview: Geosynthetics are widely used to reinforce soil masses in the design of retaining walls and slopes. In these Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) applications, horizontal layers of the geosynthetics are sandwiched between compacted layers of fill during construction. The principal parameters in design are the tensile strength and stiffness of the geosynthetic, and the soil–geosynthetic interface shear and bond resistance. The application of geosynthetics in civil engineering is becoming more and more recognized nowadays because of its special advantages. Geosynthetics have proven to be among the most versatile and cost-effective ground modification materials.
