Retaining Walls; Their Design And Construction ##BEST##


The design process for a segmental retaining wall typically has a Wall Design Engineer or Site Civil Engineer responsible for the wall design envelope. Geotechnical engineers should be hired to evaluate the overall stability of the site. For information into the basic concepts behind an Allan Block retaining wall design see page 18 of the AB Spec Book and Best Practices for SRW walls.


Below I describe the process for design of a simple retaining wall and some of the issues that should be considered. This is by no means a complete step-by-step list of instructions but it will provide the reader with a basic understanding of what goes into the design effort and what to expect from it.


The designer should also consider whether jointing of the wall is required. Contraction joints are used to control temperature and shrinkage cracking. The spacing of these joints is usually 1 to 1 times the wall height but not more than 20 feet. Expansion joints may be needed on unusually long walls or where walls abut another structure. Construction joints may be required for unusually tall or long walls.


The designer should specify the requirements for the backfill and for the drainage of the backfill. The type of soil to be used and the required compaction should be specified. Free-draining aggregate fill placed in shallow lifts and compacted with a vibratory plate compactor will induce the least pressure on the wall and will most likely produce the most economical design for taller walls. Sometimes it will be desirable to place a cap of clayey soil above the aggregate fill. The backfill should be drained with perforated pipe wrapped in filter fabric or with weep holes installed at regular intervals through the face of the wall.


Mr. Brian Walker,Thank you for this resource. It is good information to begin design and to consider during the design and construction. I appreciate the time you have taken to compile this information and make it available to all.


First off, I love that you went to Oklahoma State as I have a ton of family members that went there and love that place. I love this article, because I have come across so many DIY retaining walls that break and I end up fixing them. Most people forget about the drain component and key. So what happens is the soil gets saturated and then starts to move and destroy the stem. This article really shows you the right way to do it and I also like that you are calling out pricing per foot as I get that question all the time.


Thank you for an informative and easy-to-read post. I was looking for basic information about retaining wall construction to verify against what my contractor told me, and this was exactly what I needed.


Keystone Construction Manual: Developed as a tool to aide in the design and construction of Keystone structural products including Keystone Standard and Keystone Compac units. This manual was updated in 2020.Country Manor System Design & Construction Manual: Covers design and installation details for both the original Country Manor and Stonegate units. Contents include design details such as: corners, curves, steps, terraces and free-standing walls, in addition to sections on design considerations and design charts.


Keystone Design Manual & KeyWallPRO Operating Guide: Updated in 2020, it concisely describes the retaining wall design components and related design theory based on accepted engineering principals and concepts. The KeyWallPRO program allows the user to choose between different design methodologies and compare results. This manual simplifies design by concentrating on the Keystone concrete wall units and specific geogrid products.


There are many things that need to go into building a retaining wall before the first shovel of dirt is ever moved. By using the information we have on building retaining walls you will get everything you need to plan, design and build the perfect retaining wall project.
