Paper Title:
The Construction Technology of Light Masonry Retaining Structure Used in Fluctuating Belt of the Three Gorges Reservoir Area
  Abstract

Masonry retaining structure consists of precast concrete blocks, which has good looks and is in harmony with environment. Blocks with proper shape can be used in fluctuating belt of the reservoir area. The construction of masonry structure should conform to the following steps: first, excavate the foundation ditch, lay a cushion and arrange the controlling points, insuring the quality of the first layer of blocks; it would be better to choose inorganic coarse-grained soil as filler and to set a water filtering layer with a height more than 30cm behind the retaining wall; carry on the construction of earth filling behind the wall after the blocks are fixed as requested, and then fix the geotechnical grille when the height of earth filling reaches the elevation of the grille; put Geotechnical Fabric between permeable aggregate and the earth filling behind it to keep the two materials from mixing.
