Report No. : Geoguide 6

Report Title : Guide to Reinforced Fill Structure and Slope Design

Author : Geotechnical Engineering Office


This Geoguide presents a recommended standard of good practice for the design and construction supervision of permanent reinforced fill features in Hong Kong. It is a companion to the latest version of Geoguide 1 - Guide to Retaining Wall Design and is aimed at qualified engineers who are conversant with the relevant engineering principles and procedures. It supersedes Geospec 2 - Model Specification for Reinforced Fill Structures and GEO Report No. 34 - A Partial Factor Method for Reinforced Fill Slope Design.

The Geoguide also provides a Model Specification which stipulates the general requirements on the quality of materials, standard of workmanship, testing methods and acceptance criteria for reinforced fill construction. The Model Specification given in Appendix A of the Geoguide serves as a reference for practitioners in the preparation of particular specification for the construction of reinforced fill structure and slope. Modifications would be necessary to suit individual situations and contract requirements.
