Abstract

A number of realistic mechanically-stabilized earth (MSE) wall systems are investigated using the general analysis/design procedure described in the companion paper (Part I). Comparisons among the various design methods are made. Impact of the new Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) method on MSE wall design is discussed. To ease the comparisons among the various design approaches, a unified notation is used to express all design parameters.
