Standard Specification for Dry-Cast Segmental Retaining Wall Units
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers dry–cast segmental retaining wall units of concrete, machine–made from hydraulic cement, water, and suitable mineral aggregates with or without the inclusion of other materials. The units are intended for use in the construction of mortarless segmental retaining walls. The material composition of retaining wall units consists of cementitious materials like portland cement and its modified form, limestone, hydraulic cement, blended hydraulic cement, pozzolans, blast furnace slag cement, aggregates, and other constituents which include air-entraining agents, coloring pigments, integral water repellents, and finely ground silica. All units shall be sound and free of cracks or other defects that interfere with the proper placement of the unit or significantly impair the strength or permanence of the construction.
1.1 This specification covers dry-cast segmental retaining wall units of concrete, machine–made from hydraulic cement, water, and suitable mineral aggregates with or without the inclusion of other materials. The units are intended for use in the construction of mortarless segmental retaining walls.
Note 1: When particular features are desired, such as density classification, higher compressive strength, surface texture, finish, color, or other special features, such properties should be specified separately by the purchaser. Suppliers should be consulted as to availability of units having the desired features.
1.2 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
