Title:  Design, Construction, Maintenance and Inspection Guide for Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls (2017)
Publication code:  PTM-MSEW-E

Mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls are a mature earth retention technology but concerns sometimes arise over who retains ultimate responsibility for wall design, quality assurance, asset management and repairs, and post-construction in-service monitoring, particularly if significant construction or performance problems occur. 

Design, Construction, Maintenance and Inspection Guide for Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls provides owners, engineers, suppliers and contractors of MSE walls with practical guidance on the selection, design, construction, and inspection of these structures with a focus on public works projects. The guide was developed through reviews of published literature supplemented by a survey of industry stakeholders. It is not intended to reproduce the large volume of published design guidance and related information; rather the guide highlights aspects of the current state of practice in Canada and suggests modifications of current practice where deficiencies are apparent.
