  2. 2. CLASSIFICATION OF RETAINING WALL •
  3. 3. THE COMMON TYPES ARE: 1. GRAVITY WALLS 2. CANTILEVER RETAINING WALLS 3. COUNTERFORT RETAINING WALLS 4. BUTTRESSED WALLS
  4. 4. GRAVITY WALLS Gravity walls depend on their mass (stone, concrete or other heavy material) to resist pressure from behind and may have a 'batter' setback to improve stability by leaning back toward the retained soil
  5. 5. CANTILEVER RETAINING WALLS Cantilevered retaining walls are made from an internal stem of steel-reinforced, cast-in-place concrete or mortared masonry (often in the shape of an inverted T)
  6. 6. COUNTERFORT RETAINING WALLS These walls are used when the backfill of greater height is to be retained in this walls the vertical stem an the heel slab are strengthened by providing counterforts at some suitable intervals which acts as continuous slab in contrast retaining walls.
  7. 7. BUTTRESSED WALLS These walls are the modification of the counterfort retining walls. In this the duttresses are provided to the other side of the backfill. These are not commonly used
