Cantilevered Retaining Wall Analysis & Design

Module Summary

  • Analyzes and designs individual cantilevered retaining walls
  • Permits multiple stem sections to be defined with concrete or masonry of various thickness
  • Offers a choice of lateral pressure method (E.F.P., or Coulomb)
  • Considers combined axial load and bending
  • Allows the definition of a wide variety of loads including wind load on exposed stem above soil, surcharges on toe and heel, vertical load applied on top of stem, lateral load on stem, and effects of adjacent footing loads
  • Provides user with control over which components of resisting forces to consider
  • Offers the convenience of fill-in-the-blanks style forms and instantaneous recalculation to facilitate the evaluation of “what-if” scenarios
  • Provides highly efficient results summaries as well as generous detail in the on-screen and printed results
