the required pullout capacity. The RSS
fire damage remediation was completed
in September 2015. Figures 9 and 10
show the wire mesh installation and the
sleeves for the anchor installation near
the top of the RSS face.

Conclusion
The below-grade RSS stress relief wall,
constructed along the southern portion
of the U.S. Bank Stadium, with a 5-foot
(1.5-m) void at the top of the RSS, was
conceived as a substitute for a 30-foot (9.1m) tall cast-in-place concrete foundation
wall on a drilled pier foundation. The cost
savings was estimated at $5.5 million.

The RSS wall design required that the
site excavation, grading and utility plans
be altered. Implementation presented
unique design challenges. Some of these
challenges included geometric constraints,
horizontal and vertical obstructions
within the RSS reinforced zone, and fire
damage on a portion of the RSS facing.
Gale-Tec Engineering Inc. and TenCate
Geosynthetics worked with the structural
and civil engineers as well as the general
and earthwork contractors to address these
unique challenges complementary to other
portions of the stadium site construction. G
