This publication provides good practice guidance on the selection and design of vertical embedded retaining walls to satisfy the requirements of Eurocodes. It covers temporary and permanent cantilever, anchored, single and multi-propped retaining walls that are supported by embedment in soft soils, stiff clays, other competent soils and soft rocks.

The content addresses the technical and construction issues relating to the selection of appropriate wall types and construction sequence to achieve a satisfactory design. It clarifies areas of ambiguity and common misunderstandings when applying the Eurocodes to the design of embedded retaining walls and presents a clear, unambiguous method for the application of the Observational Method.
