Abstract

The Nehemiah anchored earth wall system is a type of mechanically stabilized backfill structure where the mode of stress transfer from the backfill to the reinforcement is by passive resistance in addition to the friction. This paper presents the findings of pull out resistance of the reinforcing tendon together with the anchor block of the anchored earth wall system. Nine experimental tests were carried out to demonstrate the factor of safety of the pull out resistance of the anchored earth wall. In addition, a summarized historical background, design concepts, construction procedures and performance of the Nehemiah anchored earth wall system is provided.
