[SEAOC] retaining walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
      I would appreciate information on alternate types of retaining walls
for heights above fifteen feet. Cantilever types have footings that are too
wide . Caisson and grade beam types are expensive. I have seen systems that
stack concrete pieces back at an angle but are they calculated?  Any other
ideas will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
