Retaining Wall Design
A retaining wall it’s a construction designed to resist the lateral pressure of soil and to create a permanent vertical or almost horizontal cut in the topography by civil engineers. A retaining wall can be used to expand flat regions, to elevate the topography where spacing or site circumstances are not appropriate for slopes, to provide stability to steep terrain, or as a safety measure. Retaining walls come in many shapes and sizes, as well as varying degrees of complexity. Depending on your needs, it may range from something as basic as a curb or planter wall to something as complex as a cantilever, braced, pile, or soil nail wall. Static earth pressure, living loads, water pressure, and even seismic loads are all taken into account throughout the design process. The stability of the soil is also taken into mind.
