Segmental Retaining Wall (SRW) Committee


To Be Determined in early 2020


Develop and maintain consensus standard(s) addressing the design, construction, and quality assurance of segmental retaining wall structures.


Improve or create SRW-related practices and resources that:

  • Encourage safe and economical design;
  • Inform designers, regulators, and users; and
  • Reflect appropriate state-of-the-art design, analyses, research, and field observations.

Some of the planned activities of the Committee are:

  • Identify current practices and resources related to SRW design, construction, or inspection; including gaps;
  • Create, maintain and update appropriate consensus standards;
  • Identify issues requiring additional research or investigation; and
  • Promulgate resources developed under its purview.
