Originally scheduled to have been launched before Covid lockdown measures put a spanner
in the works, the new extended version of the Terraforce Design Guide is out now.
Although partially based on the original 1992 Design Manual, this updated and revised edition involved the participation of professionals in three countries under extraordinarily challenging circumstances.
The guide was developed to support engineers in designing segmented block retaining walls in accordance with design standards in various countries. It deals with the theory of gravity retaining wall design, with worked examples, as well as with the theory of composite retaining wall design.
In addition, the guide has built-in links to useful design tools to assist in design, construction
and supervision routines. Cautionary notes and notes for contractors are included, as well as
a Table Creator to obtain design values for our blocks and to help in estimating material costs.
There is a link to the Maxiwall Pro software for the design of composite retaining walls,
as well as a link to Terrasafe, Terraforce’s in-house design service.
