A in-situ experiment was performed to evaluate the pullout resistance capacity of chains which is used as a reinforcement of reinforced earth wall. It was also considered that chain was combined with a bar or L-type steel angle by the transverse reinforcement member in the experiment. As a result of experiment, it is expected that chain can be safely used as reinforcements of reinforced earth wall, although it is concerned that a theoretical estimation of the pullout resistance capability of chain is too conservative.
