[SEAOC] Re: [SEAOC] retaining walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Tom,

I have heard of crushing problems with tall concrete crib walls at the base.
  The bottom row(s) of crib walls crushed under the load of the upper crib
walls and retained soil.  This may have been a  manufacturer quality control
problem, but you may want to investigate the material properties of the crib
wall elements furthur.
