Retained Soil Walls are a composite result of the use of galvanized mesh interacting with soil backfill. The system is comprised of the following components: precast facing panels, galvanized mesh, joint materials, hardware and connectors. The concrete facing panels provide an aesthetic appearance while retaining the backfill material. The soil reinforcement provides the tensile strength required to mechanically stabilize the MSE mass. MSE walls perform in the same manner as a gravity wall where the lateral resistance is a function of the dead weight of the reinforced soil mass.
