Abstract: The Highway Innovative Technology Evaluation Center (HITEC), serves as a clearinghouse for implementing highway innovation by conducting nationally focused, collaborative evaluations of new products and technologies. This report, Evaluation of the VlSTAWALL MSE Structural Wall Systems. by T&B Structural Systems, was prepared as part of the HITEC evaluation for earth retaining systems (ERS). This evaluation was Performed on VISTAWALL, a mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) structure, developed, designed, and supplied by T&B Structural Systems. This report describes a HITEC evaluation designed to determine the basic capabilities and limitations of VISTA WALL for use as a technically viable precast MSE retaining wall system. The evaluation was conducted based on material, design, construction, performance, and quality assurance information outlined in the HITEC Protocol. VISTAW ALL features rectangular segmental precast concrete facing panels and galvanized welded wire, grid-type soil reinforcement.
