Did you know…that Reinforced Earth® structures also work under water?
Reinforced Earth® structures can be designed to be partially or even fully submerged by water.
The stability of the structures is checked for all critical conditions (lowest water level, highest water level, rapid draw down). Effective stresses, pore water pressures and in some cases pore water flows are taken into account in the design.
