Description

The use of tiebacks has evolved from simple lateral support during construction or excavation, to an increased number of permanent installations. This book examines the process of choosing the right tie-back or anchor for the job and the varying factors that influence those decisions from concept to construction, including corrosion, long-term capacity and soil conditions.
