Abstract: Gabion is a wire mesh cage or basket filled with stones, They can be manufactured in welded mesh or woven wire. Gabions are used in many situations including the stabilization of earth movement and erosion, river control, reservoirs, canals refurbishment, landscaping and retaining walls. The main aim of this research was to investigate the behavior of gabion structure through the development of finite element model of gabion using COMSOL program. The construction of model stages were started with develop numerical model to simulate the behavior (deformation , strain and stress) of single gabion box (20×20×20 )cm, and Compare the result obtained from the model with testing result of the compression tests performed in the laboratory. The second stage included the development of a numerical model to simulate the behavior (deformation, strain ,and stress) of a single gabion box model for existing gabion structure using the gabion box (120×45×45)cm. Finally, a study the mechanical behavior of large scale model of existing gabion structure using the gabion box (120×45×45)cm was made and deformation results were compared with these obtained from with the actual structure . The result of numerical analysis of model was seen that the results obtained from COMSOL and Physical model have been according reality within the specific range with some of different value including stresses, deformation and strain, this difference was discussed to reach the reason of this variation . Generally , in the small box model (20×20×20)cm the deformation was record within range (4.0 to 53.081 mm) , and in box (120×45×45)cm the deformation was record within range ( 4 to 11.011mm) , but in the wall model the deformation was record within range (0 to 0.1 mm) The studies as a whole are expected to contribute substantially to understand the actual behavior of gabion structure systems with particular reference to efficiency and stability of it.
