Through modeling field temperature process,the experimental study on reinforced retaining walls suffering freeze-thaw cycling is performed.Conclusions are drawn as follows:(1) Horizontal frost-heave forces always occur during freezing,and tensile strain appears in the geogrid used in the reinforced retaining walls,which reduces the horizontal frost-heave forces.(2) Frozen deformation occurs at the top of the retaining wall during freezing.When the temperature drops down to-5℃,the frost-heave… CONTINUE READING
