How to reinforce a retaining wall

This construction video is based on construction sequence animation. The animation is created for arranging reinforcement toward a single retaining wall panel.

Some useful information on Retaining Wall :-

A retaining wall must preserve all the material that loads the space among itself and the failure planeā€”all most vertical angle at which prevailing soil can retain itself organized prior to caving in.

A retaining wall must restrain a part of soil, not anything behind the wall.

A strong wall is developed with well-compacted base material, compacted material facing the wall to avoid kick-out, and stepped-back materials.

A wall that contains an irregular base, no compacted material ahead of it and no pull back to the materials will fail in the end.

From upper to lower, a wall that is developed efficiently can either resist water from flowing behind the wall or steers it away instantly when it does.

Water stuck behind a wall shoves against it and raises the weight of the soil, which also shoves against it.

A wall should have capability to handle water, otherwise the water will move the blocks out of place.
