Learning more about retaining walls and how they help with deep excavation.

About this event

Much was learned from the monitoring and behaviour of retaining walls in Dublin Boulder Clay between 1996 and 2007. Due to the recent economic upturn several new basements are currently being constructed.

The design of temporary works, in particular, have taken into account the lessons learned on previous projects so as to make the new works more efficient in terms of time and economy.

The speaker will describe the background geology and ground conditions and will then go on to give some examples of these recent schemes, with guidance for designers of future schemes in similar glacial environments.

Speaker

Mike Long (UCD) & Maurice Ryan (Byrne Looby & Partners)
