Lessons Learned in Segmental Retaining Wall Design

Retaining walls have been used for millenia, with the most famous being the Great Wall of China.  Today’s Segmental Retaining and Architectural Walls are fundamentally advancements on this age old technology.  But these advancements have come about in response to failures, which we do not want to repeat.  In 2016, NCMA (National Concrete Masonry Association) developed their Segmental Retaining Wall Best Practices Guide for the Specification, Design, Construction and Inspection of SRW Systems as a compendium of contemporary knowledge collected over time.

This presentation focuses on identifying common failure mechanisms, followed by the lessons learned in design and installation practices to prevent these problems.
