Assessment of Behaviour Characteristics for Geobag Wall System Using Recycled Waste Concrete
Field instrumentation for a recycled waste concrete geobag wall was performed to investigate the performance of the geobag wall, and uniaxial compression tests for a recycled waste concrete geobag were executed in the laboratory. The strength of a recycled waste concrete geobag, the lateral earth pressure of a geobag wall, the horizontal deflection of a geobag wall, and the deformation of the backfill in a geobag wall are evaluated in this study. Based on the results of analysis bylaboratory tests and measurements, the recycled waste concrete geobag wall displacement was within the recommended allowable range for mechanically stabilized earth walls. Furthermore, the recycled waste concrete in geobag wall provided stability, construction ease, and good performance.
