This program will address the basic concepts about segmental retaining wall (SRW) systems. The presentation will address the history of reinforced earth structures and summarize the site conditions that impact SRW performance and design. Installation details, the proper construction sequence, and specifications are also addressed.

Learning Objectives: 

  •  Participants will learn the types and applications for earth retaining wall systems.
  •  Participants will gain a greater understanding of how to specify segmental retaining walls.
  •  Participants will learn the site conditions that influence system performance and design.
  •  Participants will understand the overall construction sequence for segmental retaining walls.
