Although the range and number of applications of the concept of reinforced earth have been increasing rapidly all over the world its main use has been in the construction of earth retaining structures. The dual objectives of the PC-based work reported herein are to train students and to aid practitioners so as to help exploit this form of construction, because of its wide scope in "value engineering". The program is based on Rankine's theory Internal and external stability aspect are covered with the exception of slip failure. Application of the program is illustrated and plans for future work are described.
