Retaining Walls: In Theory and Practice
This small volume is intended to serve as a practical guide for students and others interested in the general design and construction of ordinary retaining walls. The essential principles which govern a sound knowledge of this branch of engineering are explained in detail, whilst at the same time the use of complicated formulas and advanced mathematics have been avoided as much as possible.
Some portions of the subject matter originally appeared in a series of articles in the Builders' Journal. These have been recast, and collected into book form, the whole being arranged so as to provide a convenient book of reference.
