This European Standard establishes general principles for the execution of diaphragm walls as either retaining walls or cut-off walls.


This standard covers only structures constructed in a trench excavated with a support fluid or in dry conditions, where soil is removed and replaced by concrete or slurry and with wall thickness B = 40 cm.


Diaphragm walls can be permanent or temporary structures.


The following types of structure are considered:

  1. retaining walls: usually constructed to support the sides of an excavation in the ground. They include:

    1. cast in situ concrete diaphragm walls;

    2. precast concrete diaphragm walls;

    3. reinforced slurry walls;

  2. cut-off walls: usually constructed to prevent migration of groundwater, clear or polluted, or of other contaminants present in the ground. They include:

    1. slurry walls (possibly with membranes or sheet piles);

    2. plastic concrete walls.


Walls formed shallow vertical trenches (typically excavations with a ratio of depth over thickness  D/ B < 5 or D < 5 m) are not covered by this standard.
