Concrete Crib Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We have a project with a precast concrete crib retaining wall that was
installed in the 1970's.  I remember using them in the 1970s and 1980s but
have not heard anything recently.  Are they still used?  This one has a bulge
and we are looking at replacing it.  Has anyone seen technical papers or
evaluated an existing wall before?  

Thanks for any information.
