Describes and illustrates a method for the design of retaining walls with special reference to the highway field. Included is a suggested classification of walls. It touches lightly on the selection of wall types and of earth -pressure formulas and factors, and discusses and illustrates briefly the preparation of charts. Both method and charts were developed and used by the author in a large bridge designing office and for the design of practically all wing walls of the numerous bridges of the Pennsylvania Turn-pike, thereby saving design cost and facilitating the intense design pace of the project.
