In recent times the natural hazards in India & all round the world are increasing day by day. One such landslide was in Kuranchery village in Thekkumkara Panchayath, Thissur. Analysis of the soundness of earth retaining structures in such slopes and embankments could be a tough geotechnical task. The software package GEO5 permits geotechnical engineers to hold out stability analysis of the retaining wall designed. it’s a simple to use suite that consists of individual programs with a unified and easy interface. retaining walls are structures that are accustomed retain earth (or the other material) in a position wherever the ground level changes suddenly. The ‘cantilever wall’ is that the most common variety of retaining wall and is economical up to regarding 8 m. Counter fort walls ar appropriate for holding wall heights 8.0m to 10.0m.
