Reinforced Earth Abutments

Reinforced Earth Abutments system can also be used as a bridge footing.

Due to the flexible structure of the and transfering low pressures to the ground, reinforced earth abutment can be easily constructed at points where seismic activity is effective and the soil bearing capacity is weak.

Due to the simplicity of construction and the fact that the system is more economical than reinforced concrete structures, it is a system which is frequently preferred in highways and state railways.
