Passive System (PS)
The main bearing function in this system has the earth reinforced block, which at the first is constructed using the main reinforcements (geogrids or wovens). Simultanously, the short secondary reinforcement inserts are placed for the later anchorage of the block facing in front of the earth reinforced block.
After finishing of settlements and deformations of the reinforced block a final facing system can be installed in front of it, using a layer-by-layer method. The gap between the blocks and the front of the earth reinforced block is filled with drainage layer (for example gravel) and the secondary inserts are anchored between the concrete blocks.
