Abstract—The concept of seismic analysis of reinforced earth wall along with soil structure interaction is reviewed and discussed. A systematic summary of history and status of seismic analysis of reinforced earth wall and soil structure interaction is proposed in these paper. Various methods for analysis considering different seismic parameters different soil conditions are discussed along with work in numerical modelling. Parametric studies illustrate the effects of seismic acceleration on the design of reinforced retaining wall and also the forces in the reinforcements.
