Diaphragm walls are a method of creating a cast in-situ reinforced concrete retaining wall using the slurry supported trench method. As such, they are often known as slurry walls. However, the new and better term is “diaphragm walls.” Concrete diaphragm slurry walls were first introduced in the United States in the 1960s and have found a niche in urban environments such as San Francisco, Boston, New York City and Washington, DC. Topics of this presentation include the application, construction process and design methods for diaphragm walls.
