Dry stone retaining structures are structures made of individual decimeter stone blocks in contact. One advantage of this construction technology lies in the weak amount of embodied energy required for their construction, and uses only local materials. This technology may be a positive answer to the challenges brought by sustainable policies in civil engineering. Many of these structures are older than one hundred years and sustain damage due to ageing; this places the owners in front of a challenging issue.

Since the middle of the 20th Century yield design approacheshave been identified with the lower and upper bound theorem oflimit analysis theory – a theory associated with perfectplasticity. This theory is very restrictive regarding theapplicability of yield design approaches, which have been used forcenturies for the stability of civil engineering structures. This book presents a theory of yield design within the original“equilibrium/resistance” framework rather thanreferring to the theories of plasticity or limit analysis;expressing the compatibility between the equilibrium
