The selection of a type of retaining wall does not solely depend on the height of material to be retained. There are a multitude of reasons why certain types of wall are selected over others. For example:
Foundation Type Selection Chapter 6: Retaining Walls Anchor: CACCCGHI Section 1: Retaining Wall Selection Anchor: i Overview. The project engineer who seals the plans is responsible for ensuring that the retaining wall selected for a given location is appropriate. Use the following criteria to choose a retaining wall:
This assistance may include research, preliminary retaining wall design, and type selection during the project planning or early design phase; field investigation, analyses, external retaining wall design, and design support during the Conventional retaining walls are typically type-selected during project planning or early
Foundation Type Selection Section 3: Design Considerations Anchor: i The project engineer must ensure that the retaining wall system is appropriate for its location. Check walls to ensure minimum factors of safety are met for all potential modes of failure. These include sliding, overturning, bearing pressure, and global stability.
A retaining wall is not randomly constructed, but should be selected and designed to suit individual ground and site conditions In my last article, I provided some rather dramatic images of retaining wall failures and demonstrated that design and consequently selection of an appropriate construction method is crucial.
Retaining wall design and wall type selection is driven by several factors. Vertical Stamping Photo Gallery. Wall Textures. These factors include: Cost
