Geotechnical engineers, project engineers, and consultants address pertinent questions concerning the serviceability of existing earth retention structures. They review design relating to corrosion protection and deflections, and examine uncertainties that result from various contracting procedures and liability issues. Topics include the design, construction and monitoring of a temporary shoring support system; soil nailing to save distressed timber walls; and the construction of a cofferdam pressure relief system.
