A reinforced concrete retaining wall in consolidated sand is analysed by the conventional method based on the limit of equilibrium, and also by a finite element procedure, in order to establish the stress state of the soil. In the finite element procedure, interaction with the soil is determined on the hypothesis of different thicknesses of the structure. Results obtained from the two approaches are compared diagramatically. /TRRL/
