Calculation Steps


           Before begining to design a retaining wall we need to establish the different restraints that we might have in terms of :
  • site geometry and initial conditions ;
  • the nature of soil(soft, rock or different layers);
  • the posibility of  using as much site material as possible;
  • for slopes with heights above 1.5m  we need to determine the depth of the water behind the future retaining wall in order to determine the hydrostatic pressure
  • nature of soil in front and at the base of the future retaining wall .
