Concrete Retaining Walls May For Construction Purposes Be Divided Into
Two Classes: Plain Concrete Walls Of Gravity Section And Reinforced
Concrete Walls Consisting Of A Thin Slab Taking The Thrust Of The Earth
As A Cantilever Anchored To A Base Slab Or As A Flat Beam Between
Counterforts. The Reinforced Wall Requires Much Less Concrete For A
Given Height Than Does The Plain, Gravity Wall, But The Concrete Is More
