Retaining walls are relatively rigid walls used for supporting the soil mass laterally so that the soil can be retained at different levels on the two sides. Retaining walls are structures designed to restrain soil to a slope that it would not naturally keep to (typically a steep, near-vertical or vertical slope). They are used to bound soils between two different elevations often in areas of terrain possessing undesirable slopes or in areas where the landscape needs to be shaped severely and engineered for more specific purposes like hillside farming or roadway overpasses.
Types of Retaining Walls:
Gravity Retaining Wall, Crib Retaining Wall, Gabion Retaining Walls, Cantilever Retaining Wall, Counter-fort / Buttressed Retaining Wall, Anchored Retaining Wall, Piled Retaining Wall, Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) Retaining wall, Hybrid Systems
