This paper concerns the optimization of sensors locations used to monitor the geosynthetic reinforcement internal forces of a reinforced earth retaining walls. The internal stability analysis of these structures is addressed through the kinematic theorem of limit analysis combined with the discretization technique to generate the failure surface. Knowing that the majority of damages of these structures are caused by the water presence in the reinforced zone, different water table levels are considered in the study and their effects on the critical failure surface location are analyzed.
