Prepared by the Highway Innovative Technology Evaluation Center (HITEC), a CERF Service Center.

This report evaluates the ARES Retaining Wall System, manufactured by Tensar Earth Technologies, Inc., to determine its basic capabilities and limitations for use as a technically viable, precast, mechanically stabilized earth structure. The evaluation was conducted based on design, construction, performance, and quality assurance information outlined in the HITEC Protocol. The ARES System features segmental precast concrete facing panels five feet high by nine feet wide (1.52 m by 2.74 m) and high-density polyethylene geogrid soil reinforcement, which is connected to the facing panels using a newly developed slot connection method.
