Description

This report presents the results from comparative studies on the design of embedded and conventional retaining walls using Eurocode 7 and existing UK design methods. For the study, design examples of both wall types were selected which were considered typical of construction on the national motorway network. Design examples for embedded walls included both cantilever and walls propped at the top; and L-shaped walls and bridge abutments were considered for conventional construction. Sizing of the structures was carried out by considering the different ultimate limit state modes of failure, and design of the structural elements was then established for serviceability and ultimate limit states. The report concludes by comparing the overall designs using the various standards/codes to assess their relative merits.show more
