 Summary:
 This paper investigates the potential for the use of gabion walls as retaining structures and their principal characteristics. The main reasons for this are many slopes and landslides made by cutting into terrains, which usually have to be secured with retaining structures. On the other hand the stability of retaining structures in flood prone areas has become a serious problem in many places. For this purpose it is necessary to apply appropriate types of retaining structures, that can address this problem. Hence, this paper presents an overview of the concept of building structures made of rectangular and hexagonal gabion types with stability control.
