Corrosion/Degradation of Soil Reinforcements
Project Details
Location: USA
Client: FHWA
Client Contact: Ryan R. Berg

ERTesting served as a sub-consultant to Ryan R. Berg and Associates to prepare  revisions and updates to the FHWA manual on  "Corrosion/Degradation of Soil Reinforcements for Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes." The primary purpose of the manual is to serve as the FHWA standard reference for highway projects involving reinforced soil structures. This manual also supports the national efforts on health monitoring of bridge foundations and asset management, providing (1) test techniques and protocols that are being employed to collect performance data for earth reinforcements, (2) data interpretation and (3) preliminary information available from data that has been collected to data. 

ERTesting uses this manual as a guide to plan and implement performance monitoring, and to follow  well-established test protocols. The manual is available for download as Publication No. FHWA-NHI-09-087.
