Retaining Walls, Stabilized Slopes, Excavations

In the next few posts, we will take a look at: Structures that are made to overcome elevations differences between two adjacent areas, which are called retaining structures, The methods to stabilize slopes (we had discussed the slope stabilization subject before here, as far as the basic theory behind it), Deep excavations, that need special […]

Retaining Structures

Retaining structures, most often called as retaining walls, are made to maintain difference of surface elevation between two sides of the wall, by restraining a certain material on the higher side, so that it does not fall over or slide to the lower side. We see retaining structures everywhere. They can be used to retain […]
