Update to Embedded Retaining Walls (RP1010)

The CIRIA Report Embedded Retaining Walls (C580), published in 2003 has become one of the most important and influential technical guides ever published by CIRIA.

Since 2003 there have been significant advances in many areas of design, application and construction techniques notwithstanding the introduction of Eurocodes into UK work practice.


This update to the existing best practice guidance on the selection and design of vertical embedded retaining walls will include reappraising insitu stress conditions, further on walls types layout and construction tolerances, guidance on 2-D and 3-D modelling and much more, as well as ensuring Eurocode compliance - particularly EC7.
