2019 Midwest Regional GeoWall Competition


On March 9, 2019, the University of Manitoba Geotechnical Student Group hosted the 2019 Midwest Regional GeoWall Competition. This was the first year that a Canadian University hosted the competition. The objective of the GeoWall competition was to design and build a small-scale mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining wall to sustain a prescribed load using minimal paper reinforcement taped to a poster board wall facing. On the day of the competition, teams were required to construct their wall, fill their box with backfill, and load test their wall. Practicing engineers in the local geotechnical community judged the competition.
