Albano, Leonard D.
This is an addendum to the 1979 MQP “Engineering Geology of Worcester County,” that I participated in with Paul Moroney. We used soils from the surrounding Worcester County to solve the engineering problem of creating a 30-foot-deep braced cut for constructing a three-level parking garage for an office building. This addendum utilizes concepts outlined in the July 5, 2012 article “Earth Retaining Systems Using Ground Anchors”, written by Barton Newton, California State Bridge Engineer.
