A retaining wall is a structure designed and constructed to resist the lateral pressure of soil, when there is a desired change in ground elevation that exceeds the angle of repose of the soil. There are three types of cast-in-place walls: gravity, cantilever, and counterfort. Each of these walls is constructed with a base slab or footing. The gravity wall relies mostly on its own weight to resist earth pressure. The wall portion (or stem) of a cantilever wall cantilevers from the base slab. The wall is thinner than a gravity wall, but it’s reinforced along the back face and in the base where loading induces tensile stress. In counterfort walls, the base slab and wall span between vertical triangular braces. These concrete braces are called counterforts if they’re on the earth side of the wall. If they’re exposed at the front, they’re called buttresses.
