Precast Counterfort Retaining Wall for Railway Applications
This innovative patent-pending precast counterfort system is designed to support future embankment consisting of existing clay/soil backfill. The system includes a precast concrete Base and a precast concrete Face with integral Counterforts (Face/CF). The Base will extend in front of the Face/CF (Base Toe) and also extend rear-wards past the end of the Counterforts (Base Heel). The Base Toe/Heel will increase to engage more soil as you start increasing in retained height to provide adequate stability for the wall.
