Retaining Walls in Oklahoma

There are roads surrounded by hills or mountains where the probability of earth forces is high. There is uneven terrain due to earth pressure. But there are also problems of soil crumbling that produce serious consequences to adjacent areas. Faced with this problem, the ideal is to build retaining walls.

The main function of these walls is to stop the force exerted by the masses of soil or earth on an inclination or slope that is otherwise impossible to achieve. However, in addition to being functional, they also have an aesthetic character in residential or commercial areas

In other words, they are part of the construction of the home and therefore fit in with its decoration. In fact, you can see walls of different shapes. That is to say, they include from natural rock to wood. Another important point is that many of them have as ornament some types of plants. For example vines. 

Types of retaining walls

There is more than one type of retaining wall that will fit in the area depending on the soil conditions, height, type of fill... Here is a list of them:

Gravity Walls: The function of stopping thrust is through self-weight. They are ideal to create foundations no higher than 5m. Also the common material for the erection of these walls is:

  • Concrete
  • Gabions
  •  Masonry
  • Breakwater
  •  Stone...

Cantilever Walls: they stop the force of the soil through a vertical cantilever over a horizontal slab. They are usually made of cement or concrete and strongly reinforced due to the bending loads they present. Totally applicable in walls shorter than 10m.

Buttressed Walls: We can say that they are the improvement of the cantilever walls. But in this case the vertical slab is joined to the base through concrete slabs called buttresses. In this way the wall stops with total security the force exerted by the earth.
