Tieback walls are typically design based on predetermined pressure distribution; however, these pressures were proposed based on performance of excavations. For retaining walls used in slope remediation, the application of these pressures might not be adequate; the construction procedure; therefore, a different response of the wall is expected. This document, presents the performance of two tieback walls installed in a shale stratum. Monitored responses is correlated with construction activities; these activates implied excavation and backfilling in both of the tieback walls. In addition, this research shows a numerical procedure to evaluate the anchor capacity based on the t- z approach. Finally, this study introduces an empirical method to estimate lateral wall deformation profiles and internal bending moments along a retaining wall installed in a clay stratum.
