Earth retaining walls and bridge abutments are part of the key infrastructure in support of a modern transportation system. Assessment of the structural safety of a retaining wall in seismic conditions is considered in this paper. Present work deals with systematic review of analytical modelling of seismic actions on retaining walls. Experimental investigation for finding displacement demand of scaled down retaining wall models has been discussed. A detailed experimental investigation has been recommended for ensuring the accuracy of the analytical modelling approach.
