Contenido Basics of Retaining Wall Design

Design guide for earth retaining structures. Updated and expanded new 10th edtition covers nearly every type of earth retaining structure: cantilevered, counterfort, restrained (basement walls), gravity, segmental, sheet pile, sodier pile, and others. Current building code requirements are covered including IBC '12, MSJC '11, ACI 318-11, ASCE 7-10, CBC '13, and AASHTO.

This book is intended to cover and explain design practices and building code requirements for the design of earth retaining structures. It is for both the practicing engineer who has become a bit rusty on this compkex subject,and for the engineering student who has already acquired a basic knowledge of statics, soil mechanics,and the design of simple masonry and concrete structures. Design review agencies will also find it a useful reference
The design of retaining walls is not an every-day design task.During my many years of providing technical support for retaining walls and need some brushing-up,
particularly on code requirements. It is also for the civil/structural engineering student to supplement other texts with current design practices and building code
requirements
Although there is a considerable amount of technical information available,it is widely scattered in numerous texbooks and technical papers on soil mechanics , foundation engieering,concrete design,mansory design,and in all sorts of related topics.Despite the many references,a single volume on retaining wall design for the
professional practitioner and civil engineering student could not be found.
Hence this attempt to condense,simplify and compile information from many sources,including my own experience,into this book. Hopefully,it will ease your
comfort level when designing retaining walls and give you a good overview of the process.For those who want to dig deeper into particular topics a comprehensive
bibliography is attached in Appendix H.
This book treats design practices for most types of earth retaining structures:conventional cantilevered retaining walls: restrainde ( basament ) walls,gravity walls,
and segmental retaining walls both gravity and with geogrids. Other topics include sheet pile walls, tilt-up retaining walls,soldier pile walls ,gabion walls,counterfort
walls,pilaster walls and walls with pile or pier foundations. A review of basic soil mechanics is also included in this book and the appendix offers useful information
including a glossary of terminlogy
