Retaining Wall Code Requirements

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm currently debating a plan checker regarding a cantilever SITE retaining wall with an 18" thick stem. He is requireing a double curtain of reinf. since the thickness is more than 10" per UBC 1914.3.4. Are site retaining walls required to be designed per all of chapter UBC 1914 or just 1914.1.2    (1994 UBC)
