Khalid, How about trying geobags? Sack-like and filled with sand or any acceptable fill. You can have also geo-tubes which are actually giant geo-bags up to 100 to 1000 cu.m. volume. Call TC Mirafi, a supplier of the geosynthetic material. 22672 Lambert Street Suite 602 Lake Forest, CA 92630 (714) 859-8984 Fax (714) 859-1841 Jerome ______________________________ Reply Separator _________________________________ Subject: Retaining Wall Author: MIME7:Khalid.Motiwala(--nospam--at)clorox.com at INTERNET Date: 8/13/98 6:54 PM I need to design a retaining wall/berm across a retention pond to reclaim solids. The wall will be 150ft long and must withstand 10ft of water pressure. I am thinking of gabion baskets with local dirt in between. Constraints: >minimize volume of wall >wall is temporary and will be in place 2 yrs, so a CHEAP solution is needed Any other suggestions......... Does anyone know of good references on earthen berm/gabion wall design.
