Earth Retaining Structures and Embankments

  • Design of earth retaining structures and embankments under CAN/CSA S6, AASHTO, FHWA, NCHRP, ISO, Eurocode 7 and/or client-specific project specifications.
  • Analysis and design of earth retaining structures and embankments using LRFD or WSD approaches.
  • Design of gravity, tie-back, concrete block, soil-nail/anchor walls under static and dynamic conditions.
  • Design of MSE walls/slopes under static and dynamic conditions.
  • Analyses and design of rock embankments/causeways.
  • Groundwater seepage evaluation.
  • Non-linear numerical analyses of earth retaining structures and embankments under static and seismic conditions considering soil degradation due to loading conditions, groundwater flow and soil-structure interaction using FLAC.
