How to Reinforce a Retaining Wall

This construction video is based on a construction sequence animation. The animation is created for arranging the reinforcement of a single retaining wall panel.

Some useful information on Retaining Walls:

A retaining wall must hold all the soil between itself and the failure plane. The failure plane is the angle at which the soil can retain itself before collapsing.

A strong wall is developed with a well-compacted base material and stepped-back materials. Also, it should have compacted material facing the wall to avoid kick-out.

In the end, a wall will always fail if it contains an irregular base, if it has no compacted material ahead of it, or if the wall has no step-back.

From upper to lower, a wall that is developed efficiently will either resist water from flowing behind the wall or steers it away instantly when it does.

Water stuck behind a wall shoves against it and raises the weight of the soil, which also shoves against it.

A wall should have the capability to handle water, otherwise, the water will move the blocks out of place.
