How to design a gabion retaining wall with Tekla Tedds

In this construction video tutorial, you will learn how to use Tekla Tedds for making calculations of gabion retaining wall analysis and design with adherence to the Eurocode to verify the strength of a gabion retaining wall from sliding overturning. Besides, it is also possible to find out the maximum and minimum base pressure underneath the wall.

A gabion retaining wall is built up with stacked stone-filled gabions which are attached together with wire. Gabion walls are generally battered (angled back towards the slope), or stepped back with the slope, in spite of stacked vertically. Besides, galvanized steel wire, PVC-coated and stainless steel wire are also utilized. This type of retaining wall is very effective for erosion control applications.
