Abstract:

The objective of this study was to investigate the response of reinforced soil systems subjected to blast loading and to assess the feasibility of using reinforced soil to provide blast resistance. To meet this objective, a testing program was developed and executed to accomplish the following 1 to establish the properties of reinforced soil subjected to blast loading, 2 to develop numerical and physical modeling techniques which are appropriate for evaluating the response of reinforced soil systems subjected to blast loading, and 3 to establish preliminary analysis methods which can be used for the design of reinforced soil systems subjected to blast loading.
