Design Charts of Honeycomb Retaining Walls


These design charts are provided as a guide and it is therefore of paramount importance that each design should be fully checked for any differences in site conditions and soil properties by a professional engineer with a good geotechnical knowledge.
Please select select one of the charts to view.

Chart list:

  •   Typical Cross-section of a Honeycomb wall
  •   Angle of Shearing Resistance of Backfill of the Honeycomb walls
