various types of loads and forces acts on a retaining wall and their calculation is important for its design. these forces on retaining wall depends on various factors which are discussed. the main purpose of retaining wall construction is to retain soil that is why soil lateral earth pressure is

retaining walls surcharge load calculation? when designing and calculating the loads on the retaining wall, how do we consider the surcharge load that affects wall a in the given picture?

surcharge location is 0 feet from shoring/retaining wall height of retaining wall/shoring is 10 feet traffic surcharge = × = 30 pcf given in this example x 3.5 ft from table 1 = 105 psf. this surcharge shall apply as a rectangular distribution to the full height of shoring. ii. site-specific calculation using

in this post, i will go over the third example in our foundation design course covering retaining walls. the goal of this foundation design example is to calculate the factors of safety against overturning and sliding for a cantilever retaining wall with uniform surcharge
