Basics of Retaining Wall Design, 8th Edition

Basics of Retaining Wall Design, 8th Edition 

Hugh Brooks

Preference :

There are many types of retaining structures for soil and other materials, but listed below are the types of retaining walls used today. Most of these will be discussed in later chapters. 
Cantilevered retaining walls 
These are the most common type of retaining walls. Cantilevered walls are classified as "yielding" because they are free to rotate without any lateral restraint. Cantilevered retaining walls are generally of masonry or concrete, or both, but can also take other forms as will be described.
