Best Practices for Zero Retaining Wall Failures - Global Stability of Tall Walls


Global stability analysis is particularly important when dealing with tall walls.  It must be considered separately from the standard wall design to ensure the stability of the entire project site. For more information on global stability see Chapter 9.0 Global Stability - General and Chapter 10.0 Global Stability - Terraced.  (ref. BP, Chapter 8.5)


Allan Block is working to achieve our industry initiative of Zero Wall Failures. With our Best Practices Manual and experience in the industry we are trying to expand the knowledge base for the design of segmental retaining walls (SRW's) by communicating and educating the professionals in the industry.  To see the full Best Practices Manual, visit allanblock.com to download today and keep an eye out for more industry Best Practice recommendations here.
