In cantilever retaining walls, the concrete base or footing holds the vertical masonry wall in position and resists overturning and sliding caused by lateral soil loading. The reinforcement is placed vertically in the cores of the masonry units to resist the tensile stresses developed by the lateral earth pressure.

Cantilever retaining walls figure 7.1c are made of reinforced concrete that consists of a thin stem and a base slab. This type of wall is economical to a height of about 25 ft 8 m . Counterfort retaining walls figure 7.1d are similar to cantilever walls.
