Working collaboratively with CIRIA we have produced a report providing good practice guidance on the selection and design of vertical embedded retaining walls to satisfy Eurocode requirements. It covers various temporary and permanent forms of retaining walls that are supported by embedment in soft soils, stiff clays, other competent soils and soft rocks.

The report addresses the technical and construction issues relating to the selection of appropriate wall types and construction sequence to achieve a satisfactory design. It clarifies areas of common misunderstanding when applying Eurocodes to the design of embedded retaining walls and presents a clear, unambiguous method for the application of the observational method.

How can I obtain a copy of the guidance?
Printed and electronic copies of the guide are available to purchase from the CIRIA website, reference C760.
