Design of concrete cantilever retaining walls to resist earthquake loading for 1.2 Example Wall . Figure X.2. Concrete cantilever wall example. geometry developed for the gravity case and including the earthquake inertia loads from the self-weight of the wall and from the soil above the heel according to the analytical
Surcharge Lateral Earth Pressure Description A uniform vertical pressure applied to the ground surface in the vicinity of a retaining wall is called a surcharge load. This surcharge load will result in an additional horizontal pressure on the wall. Calculations
SECTION 5 - RETAINING WALLS Part A . General Requirements and Materials . 5.1 GENERAL . Retaining walls shall be designed to withstand lateral earth and water pressures, the effects of surcharge loads, the self-weight of the wall and in special cases, earth
