The evolution of tieback restraint systems is presented. Case histories describe current practices for tieback design and construction and give examples of how the requirements were met for stabilizing specific slides. Topics include geologic aspects of landslide control using walls, analysis of wall supports to stabilize slopes, evaluation of landslide properties, and slide control by drilled cantilever pier walls and tangent pile walls. Site investigations, laboratory tests, design procedures, and construction methods are described.
