Concrete Retaining Wall - Gravity
The CONCRETE GRAVITY RETAINING WALL is constructed using mass concrete placement and generally without reinforcement. The support of backfill and other imposed loads on these walls is provided by the sheer weight of the unit. These walls are wide at the base and they taper towards the top. The overturning moment acting on this type of wall is counter-balanced by the resisting moment on account of the self-weight of the wall. The use of a separate drainage system is a typical requirement.
