Reinforced fill structures

'Eurocode 7... does not cover the detailed design of reinforced fill structures. The values of the partial factors ... given in EN 1997-1 have not been calibrated for reinforced fill structures.'6

The design of reinforced fill structures is currently carried out according to national standards, such as British Standard BS 8006.7 Although national standards share many common features, differences in working practices, geology, and climate, etc. have delayed the development of a single design method accepted throughout Europe. European standard EN 14475 (discussed in Chapter 15) provides guidance on the execution of reinforced fill structures; a future European standard will cover their design.8
