SkyCiv’s Retaining Wall software has arrived! We’re glad to offer this software as a Free Tool and a Premium version for our SkyCiv Professional users in both desktop and mobile versions!

What does it do?

The SkyCiv Retaining Wall Design module combines powerful functionality with an easy-to-use and attractive interface. The graphics have been upgraded to show a clear 2D or 3D model of the Retaining Wall design so you can easily understand the inputs and your design. In short, the Retaining Wall software will perform the following checks following The Reinforced Concrete Design Handbook, ACI SP-17(14), Vol. 2:

  • Sliding Checks
  • Bearing Checks
  • Overturning Checks

We’re also looking to add more features and design codes, so if you have any feedback or features you’d like to see added, feel free to let us know!


The software comes with a lot of features and benefits which make it different from a lot of Retaining Wall design software. It allows the user to model their Retaining Wall in 2D or 3D helping the user to interact and review the design. The interface has also been streamlined, to ensure it works well on any size screen including your mobile, making input easy and output is even easier.

Much like our other software, the design software also includes detailed calculation reports – showing the step-by-step calculations, references and results. This helps remove the black box of structural software, providing the information and clarity that engineers need when performing design.

Finally, the SkyCiv Retaining Wall software is 100% cloud-based and available on Mobile! Continuing our commitment to giving engineers access to powerful structural software anytime, from anywhere!

Mobile Access

The Retaining Wall Design Software has also been included on our Structural Engineering Mobile App! This joins our long list of useful tools including our Base Plate Design, Beam Calculator, Section Database Search, and Model Viewer – giving you all your powerful structural tools at your fingertips.
