RE: Retaining Wall Surcharge in Snow Country

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I asked the same question a while back regarding a 430 psf ground snow load
and 12 foot high basement walls. I asked the soils engineer and I have been
using the snow surcharge in the design. I did not however, include a seismic
increment with snow surcharge and active pressure. Call me cavalier.
