Types, Uses, Advantages and Disadvantages of Diaphragm Walls

Diaphragm walls are a type of reinforced concrete wall that is built into the ground to support large-scale construction projects. They are often used as a retaining wall, foundation, support for the underground structure, or a means of cutting off access to allow for deep excavation. Diaphragm walls are usually made from pre-cast concrete panels that are connected together with steel cables or reinforcement bars.
