and an existing typical cast-in-place concrete counterfort have covered fully precast concrete retaining walls or this allows the cross section of the wall to
tensile stresses that exceed the in-place concrete tensile strength. cracking due to temperature can occur in concrete members that are not considered mass concrete. hydration of cementitious materials generates heat for sev-eral days after placement in all concrete members. this heat dissipates quickly in thin sections and causes no problems.
concrete retaining wall blocks from shea concrete products are constructed in a collection of shapes that offer the ideal blend of function and form for your retaining wall project. the shapes of our retaining wall blocks permit 90 degree corners and curves to be included in designs which gives designers more options to work with.

all unilocks retaining wall systems have been engineered to work on the basic premise that the mass of the concrete units will counter the force of the soils being retained. to achieve this units are simply stacked on top of each other using a runner bond pattern. the locking mechanism on each of the units interlocks with the units below.
the total and differential vertical deformation of a retaining wall should be small for rigid gravity and semi-gravity retain ing walls and for soldier pile walls with cast-in-place concrete facing. for walls with inclined tieback anchors any downward movement can cause significant destressing of the anchors.
for the determination of earth pressure it is usual to consider a unit length of the cross-section of the wall and retained soil. a unit length is also used in the structural design of cantilever walls and other walls with a uniform cross-section. support of existing fill slopes
typical gravity wall cross-section for tumbled scapestone the depth and width of excavation is only 8" deep by 18" wide and only 4" of base material is required. gravitystone retaining walls pillars and free-standing walls require different construction methods.
with poured concrete retaining walls backfill is placed between the wall and the slope after the wall is constructed. in this section we will talk about the walls themselves their design and some important construction considerations but not about groundwork or compaction since these are entire topics in their own right.
typical cross section: gravity retaining wall height 1.5m walls of any height can be built using geogrids for reinforcement mse walls take a look at the modbloc system in more details
the concrete mass extenders use a tongue-and-groove connection to lock into the back of the retaining wall blocks. the extenders may also be locked into each other creating deeper units allowing for flexible design and easy installation.
2. semi gravity retaining wall these walls generally are trapezoidal in section. this type of wall is constructed in concrete and derives its stability from its weight. a small amount of reinforcement is provided for reducing the mass of the concrete.this can be classified into two: cantilever retaining wall counter fort retaining wall
gravity retaining wall can be constructed from concrete stone or even brick masonry. gravity retaining walls are much thicker in section. geometry of these walls also help them to maintain the stability. mass concrete walls are suitable for retained heights of up to 3 m.
