  • Facings of Walls and Steep Slopes
  • Use of Recycled and Amended Marginal Backfills in MSE and Reinforced Embankments/Slopes
  • Design of Load-Carrying MSE Bridge Abutments
  • Reinforced Veneer Stability

 
The workshop includes 21 presentations, four blocks of attendees case study/topic contributions, do’s and don’ts summaries, and a compilation of summary documents. Speakers include field luminaries such as Richard Bathurst, John Sankey, Chaido Doulala Rigby, George Koerner, Dimiter Alexiew, Jorge Zornberg, and Pietro Rimoldi.
