The article is focused on evaluating the possibility of using fiber reinforced sand as retaining wall backfill. The following tasks have been set and solved: development of recommendations on preparation of the fiber-soil mixture; laboratory stand preparation to test the models of retaining walls; preparation of the necessary volume of fiber reinforced sand with an optimum content of reinforcing fibers previously determined by the author in research works; carrying out model tests of the retaining wall backfilled with sand and fiber sand. The test results demonstrate the effectiveness of fiber reinforced sand as backfill of retaining walls.
