Re: Key Location in cant. retain. walls. -Reply

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
One consideration in locating the key on the cantilever retaining walls not
mentioned yet is the keys potential effect on the phreatic line and the
resulting uplift considerations...if this is a concern you might want to
check with your local Corps of Engineer District Design Branch for their
floodwall design memorandums.
