Abstract

An anchor slab retaining wall which stands seasonal overtopping floods was constructed in 1980 beside a river in the valley of Nanping, Fukien Province, China. Monitor measurements of its stresses and deformations were taken during the mean water level and flood seasons every year since its completion. The results of three years' observations and measurements proved that the wall is stable against floods and the earth pressure is slightly higher than the designed value.

Anchor Slab Retaining Wall Stands Overtopping Flood
