ABSTRACT: A recently developed OPMC technology is applied in the design
and construction of cost-effective retaining walls for slope failure in Ethiopia.
In this study, the concept of reinforcing earth to mainly enhance its engi-
neering properties such as strength, bearing capacity, and deformation resis-
tance is demonstrated vide the OPMC technology.
A scientific approach that led to the development of the OPMC technol-
ogy is also briefly introduced, whilst concentration is made on its pragmatic
application. Case study analysis results are presented and the comprehensive
scientific methods applied are also discussed.
