http://www.aboutcivil.org/answers/4506/what-type-of-structure-can-i-use-to-replace-a-retaining-wall
Hello<br />
We have a retaining wall that is compromised. We would like to use fencing or containment material like the type you see on highways that contain far more than we need to contain. <br />
<br />
Can this material be installed at a residential location?<br />
<br />
The wall is about 100 feet long, 2 feet tall and graduates up to 9 feet on the other end.<br />

http://www.aboutcivil.org/answers/3843/high-moisture-on-floor
Hi,<br />
<br />
I have a godown which was used for urea storage for few years. this godown was not plastered and its floor was also of bricks laid down on soil.<br />
when it was not in use for urea storage anymore, we have plastered its walls and for floor we have used concrete and then plaster of cement around 8 years back.<br />
<br />
Now problem is that too much moisture remains on floor throughout the year except summer. Moisture quantity is so much like somebody has watered the floor.<br />
<br />
We have other rooms in the vicinity of this godown and there is not such problem.<br />

Please tell me why it’s so and what can be the permanent solution for it.Civil Engineeringhttp://www.aboutcivil.org/answers/3843/high-moisture-on-floorTue, 11 Jul 2017 06:45:17 +0000how to read a contour map
