Retaining Systems in PLAXIS 2D and 3D.

The term “Retaining System” for a deep excavation refers to the structural system that retains soil and water and prevents it from collapsing into the open cut. Many retaining system options are available. The selection of the proper retaining system depends on a wide range of factors such as: Economical, soil conditions, protection of adjacent structures, ease of construction, environmental issues and more. Typical retaining systems include soldier pile and lagging, sheet piling, secant pile or tangent pile walls, soil mix walls, and diaphragm walls.A retaining is system is required in almost every civil engineering project.

Retaining systems are especially required where there is an imminent excavation. To make sure that the excavation is safe and stable, retaining walls with struts, waling, anchors etc. are added. We will see in this webinar how to approach these problems to make sure that the excavation is safe, stable, and can withstand the loads thereof with PLAXIS.

Different types of earth retaining systems can be employed to conduct deep excavation procedure in construction. The selection of earth retaining system depends on the economy, the soil conditions of the site, the safety of adjacent structures, water table conditions and environmental conditions.
