Retaining Walls

A retaining wall is a wall that holds back earth. A concrete retaining wall can stabilize the soil and rock behind it from downward and out movement or erosion and provide support for vertical or near vertical grade changes. Retaining walls are generally made of timber, steel, masonry products, brick, stone or concrete. When designing a retaining wall or concrete retaining wall, one must consider the proper design and installation because the retained material is attempting to move downslope and forward due to gravity. The force of gravity creates a pressure behind the wall. This pressure is smallest at the top and is greatest at the bottom where it tries to push the wall forward. The pressure will push the wall forward or overturn it if not properly addressed. In addition, any ground water behind the concrete retaining wall that is not dispersed by a drainage system will cause an added hydraulic pressure on the wall.
