The new AASHTO 2020 Simplified Design methodology was recently released in the United States and represents the most up to date LRFD Methodology for MSE Walls. Changes compared to previous versions include the use of the Coulomb Earth Pressure Theory which allows the inclusion of interface friction to reduce applied loads, and the application of Strip and Point Loading behind the Wall.
