Although long retaining walls are usually analysed in the permanent condition by means of a plane strain analysis, three-dimensional effects may be significant in limiting ground movements at certain stages during construction. This is particularly true for embedded diaphragm-type retaining walls propped at formation level. In this paper, a three-dimensional finite element analysis representing a typical construction sequence for such a wall is compared with a corresponding plane strain analysis and field data from the A4/A46 Batheaston–Swainswick bypass. The results are used to assess the significance of three-dimensional effects during construction, and suggest how these can be utilised to minimise ground movements.
