SECTION 5 - RETAINING WALLS Part A . 5.1 GENERAL . Retaining walls shall be designed to withstand lateral earth and water pressures, the effects of surcharge loads, the self-weight of the wall and in special cases, earth The vertical wall elements should extend below po
STABILIZING THE EARTH. We build retaining walls. Vertical Walls was formed in 1999, with the objective of providing our customers with the best quality service in the retaining wall industry. Since then, we have exceeded our goals; surviving the economic downturn of 2008, while continuing to provide the same quality of service.
Loads and Forces Acting on Retaining Wall. There are various types of loads and forces acting on retaining wall, which are: Lateral earth pressure

While our company history is rich with millions of square feet of successful retaining walls across the Southeastern United States, we continue to build more than structures as we build the trust of clients throughout the public and private sectors. Vertical Earth has earned the trust of clients as we deliver value. And most importantly
Earth Pressure and Retaining Wall Basics Richard P. Weber Course Content Content Section 1 Retaining walls are structures that support backfill and allow for a change of grade. For instance a retaining wall can be used to retain fill along a slope or it can be used to The lateral earth pressure is equal to vertical earth pressure times
Classification of retaining walls Earth retaining structures are designed to overcome significant variation in ground levels to provide either a gradient of a natural slope to a near vertical or vertical angle. They can be constructed to support fills.
Construct mechanically stabilized earth MSE retaining walls consisting of steel or geosynthetic reinforcement in the reinforced zone connected to vertical facing elements. Use precast concrete panels for vertical facing elements and coarse aggregate in the
Ko = lateral pressure / vertical pressure. Co-efficient of active earth pressure: When the retaining wall is moving away from the backfill the the ratio between lateral earth pressure and vertical earth pressure is called coefficient of active earth pressure.
Earth retaining panels are ideal for the construction of vertical walls subject to high loads or where architectural requirements demand a specific finish to the exposed wall face.
Introduction Retaining wall is used to retain earth or other material in vertical or nearly vertical position at locations where an abrupt change in ground level occurs Prevent the retained earth from assuming its natural angle of repose
Vertical Earth offers what many companies cannot a company to build a career with, not just another job. Our employees have pride in what they construct and want to be able to tell their kids, I built that
Examples of Retaining Walls Earth Pressure Theory Thursday, March 11, 2010 11:43 AM Earth pressure is the lateral pressure exerted by the soil on a shoring The theory is intended to be used for determining earth pressures on a vertical plane within a mass of soil.

The construction of earth retaining walls, bridge abutments and slope reinforcement is economical and fast with TensarTech earth retaining systems.
