Abstract

More landslides occur in Malaysia nowadays. This phenomenon frequently occurs at hillsides when the structure of the soil is unstable. Landslide not only damages the beauty of Mother Nature, it also threatens the life of those who stay nearby. Several efforts have been taken to overcome the prOblem caused by landslide. The most general method is to build a concrete retaining wall along the hillside where the structure of soil is weak. Its effectiveness to retain the slope is very efficient. Nevertheless, the cost of construction is very expensive. Rubber tire retaining wall is a new method to be used in order to reduce the construction cost. It not only strengthens the stability of the slope, but also solves the problem of air pollution (if rubber tires were burnt) by recycling the old rubber tires. The stability of a rubber tire retaining wall is checked based on the method ofconcrete retaining wall.
