Course Outline (Part 1 by GSH)
Fundamentals and Basic Design
 Introduction
Brief historical review, broad overview of different types of retaining
structures

##  Earth pressure theories

Different earth pressure theories and their mathematical derivations,
relationship between soil movement and earth pressure, selection and
acquisition of soil parameters, influence of groundwater seepage

##  Gravity (rigid) retaining structures

Limit equilibrium analysis of gravity retaining walls, limit state design
approach, design to EC7 requirements for different limit states

##  Flexible retaining structures

Limit equilibrium analysis of cantilever and single-propped sheet pile
walls, design to EC7 requirements, influence of soil arching effects

Preamble - 5
 Appreciate and understand the key features and limitations
of the different theories of lateral earth pressures and their
application in the analysis of retaining walls.

##  Able to apply mathematical and soil mechanics concepts to

derive basic earth pressure equations.
 Able to analyze simple retaining structures, such as rigid
gravity structures, cantilever walls and singly-propped wall
using common earth pressure theories with limit
equilibrium approach.
 Understand and appreciate the key features of basic design
philosophies for earth retaining structures.
 Able to analyse and check for key stability considerations of
gravity (rigid) structures, flexible cantilever walls and
singly-propped walls based on EC7 code requirements.
