Description/Abstract

The past 10 years have seen considerable advances in the practice of retaining wall design and construction. This book makes a valuable and significant contribution to the literature available to practising civil and structural engineers, not only in the field of general earth-retaining structure theory, but also by presenting the results of a large number of case studies of actual retaining wall analysis, design and construction. The reader will find this volume particularly valuable not only because of the large number of papers reporting the behaviour of the actual retaining walls during construction and thereafter, but also because of the inclusion of more fundamental papers - for example, dealing with the effects of groundwater on passive earth pressure, and integrating the influence of shear and overturning forces in the calculation of bearing capacity), and because of the wealth of information contained on the practical aspects of the numerical modelling of retaining structures of all types.
