www.colmac.in What is a retaining wall? Retaining wall is a structure that are designed and constructed to withstand lateral pressure of soil or hold back soil materials. The lateral pressure could be also due to earth filling, liquid pressure, sand, and other granular materials behind the retaining wall structure. There are various types of retaining wall structures which are used for numerous goals.

Slide 5:

www.colmac.in Gravity Retaining Wall Gravity retaining wall depends on its self weight only to resist lateral earth pressure . Commonly , gravity retaining wall is massive because it requires significant gravity load to counter act soil pressure . It can be constructed from different materials such as concrete, stone, and masonry It is economical for a height up to 3m.

Slide 6:

www.colmac.in Crib Retaining Wall Crib retaining walls are a form of gravity wall . They are constructed of interlocking individual boxes made from timber or pre-cast concrete . Then , the boxes are filled with crushed stone or other coarse granular materials to create a free draining structure . Basic types of crib retaining walls include reinforced precast, and timber retaining walls .

www.colmac.in Gabion Retaining Walls Gabion retaining wall walls are multi-celled, rectangular wire mesh boxes, which are filled with rocks or other suitable materials . It is employed for construction of erosion control structures . It is also used to stabilize steep slopes . Blocks for retaining walls

www.colmac.in  Counter-fort / Buttressed Retaining Wall It is a cantilever retaining wall but strengthened with counter forts monolithic with the back of the wall slab and base slab . Counter fort spacing is equal or slightly larger than half of the counter-fort height . Counter-fort wall height ranges from 8-12m.

Slide 9:

www.colmac.in Anchored Retaining Wall This type of retaining wall is employed when the space is limited or thin retaining wall is required . Anchored retaining wall is suitable for loose soil over rocks . Considerably high retaining wall can be constructed using this type of retaining wall structure system . deep cable rods or wires are driven deep sideways into the earth, then the ends are filled with concrete to provide anchor .
