sloped retaining walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anybody have any reference for desiging
a sloped retaining wall (say 60 degrees)?
At the critical at rest slope there is no lateral
pressure, but how would you go about reducing the
soil pressure given an angle greater than that?
