Dedicated training for practising structural engineers who want to be able to design retaining walls or want to update their knowledge of a retaining wall design.

Aim  

This course covers the design of mass and embedded retaining walls in accordance with Eurocode 7.  

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course, you should be able to:  

  • Compare and contrast different types of retaining walls
  • Calculate the earth and water pressures supported by a retaining wall, using design examples
  • Examine the different failure mechanisms applicable to a retaining wall
  • Analyse the stability of a retaining wall in accordance to Eurocode 7  

Tutor

David Beadman is a Director of ByrneLooby and has over thirty years’ experience of civil and geotechnical design, specialising in developing economic, buildable solutions for deep basement excavations, combining knowledge of a retaining wall design, structural design and construction. He has been responsible for the design of many deep basements in the UK and overseas.   Intended for Practising structural engineers who want to be able to design retaining walls or wish to update their knowledge of a retaining wall design.   Entry criteria   A basic knowledge of engineering principles is assumed, but the course will not require a detailed knowledge of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering.
