interlocking retaining block walls - this design lends a very compact look to the retaining wall that is needed for smaller yards. this is because conventionally-designed retaining walls can appear overwhelming in smaller spaces. further, the use of interlocking design means a decreased dependence on mortara definite cost-saver. stair-like
retaining wall failures due to design errors are rather exceptional case provided that an experienced structural designer carried out wall design. nonetheless, there are situations where designers are provided with inadequate or faulty information that can be extremely detrimental. retaining wall failure due to calculation errors
there are various construction, design, and detailing reasons that influence retaining wall safety and stability. on the other hand, there are convenient measures or methods by which retaining wall problems can be decreased and prevent the retaining wall distress.
geotechnical design of flexible cantilevered or anchored retaining walls to be constructed on new york state department of transportation projects. the following text provides a general discussion and design guidelines for these flexible wall systems. this document provides any designer with a framework for progressing a design and an
the paper covers a theoretical approach in data acquisition needed for design of a retaining wall. the procedure is more of a general summary and an appreciation of the role of subsurface exploration in geotechnical design. i hope to update it later

common problems although retaining walls are simple structures, a casual check around your neighborhood will reveal lots of existing walls that are bulging, cracked, or leaning. that's because most residential retaining walls have poor drainage, and many aren't built to handle the hillside they're supposed to hold back.
types of retaining walls: the problem of retaining soil is one of the oldest in geotechnical engineering; some of the earliest and most fundamental principles of soil mechanics were developed to allow rational design of retaining walls. many different approaches to soil retention have been developed and used successfully.
design and analysis of retaining walls 8.1 introduction retaining walls are structures used to provide stability for earth or other materials at their natural slopes. in general, they are used to hold back or support soil banks and water or to the wall, is neglected to avoid any problem resulting from removing the soil in front of the wall.
retaining wall problems should always be addressed as soon as possible for two reasons. first of all, once a problem develops, it will only worsen over time, usually becoming more expensive to correct. secondly, a weakened retaining wall can pose a safety problem, since complete failure of a wall can release tons of soil onto people, pets and
