Re: Retaining Wall Loading

Hi Javier:

We have some questions regarding this subject. Hopefully you or someone can
educate us.

I have heard that Mononobe-Okabe method assumes walls can displace enough to
permit a failure plane. Does this mean it only works for cantilevered walls
not the typical basement walls supported at top and bottom? Or the type of
wall is not important as long as it has enough displacement?

How much displacement is considered enough to use the Mononobe-Okabe method?
Is there any modified method can be used for walls have very small


Best Regard,
